Motivational Interviewing has becoming increasingly widespread among counselors and therapists, but no book to date has focused exclusively on applying Motivational Interviewing to domestic and partner violence.
Written by established authorities in the field, the chapters in this volume represent important applications of motivational enhancement strategies to intimate partner violence with both victims and batterers. These studies include descriptive research on victims and perpetrators of abuse, measurement issues in assessing stages of change, and real-world applications of motivational interviewing. Murphy and Maiuro illustrate both the benefits and challenges inherent in this growing area of research.
