Praise for the first edition:

"The authors of this book have made a very important contribution in producing a book that literally provides a roadmap for how to realize MI's potential in school and family contexts. They are the acknowledged leaders of MI in schools and deserve much credit for adapting this approach so well for effective use by educators...I recommend it unconditionally as an invaluable resource for today's related services professional."

-Hill Walker, PhD, University of Oregon

The second edition of this seminal reference is still the only book available that provides detailed, step-by-step guidance for using Motivational Interviewing (MI) to facilitate positive change in schools by working with parents, teachers, and students. Featuring readily accessible, proven strategies for promoting academic enabling behaviors, this text describes the defining principles, processes, and skills of MI. The new edition illuminates research-based strategies for building teacher, student, and parent engagement in school-based services, and identifies best-practice MI consultation skills, and tailors these interventions to the specific needs of teachers, students, and parents. Additionally, the book identifies methods for combining MI with other school-based intervention models as well as defining procedures for integrating MI within a school or across a school district.
