The first teacher's guide to the proven counseling approach known as motivational interviewing (MI), this pragmatic book shows how to use everyday interactions with students as powerful opportunities for change. MI comprises skills and strategies that can make brief conversations about any kind of behavioral, academic, or peer-related challenges more effective. Extensive sample dialogues bring to life the "do's and don'ts" of talking to K-12 students (and their parents) in ways that promote self-directed problem solving and personal growth. User-friendly features include learning exercises and reflection questions; aditional helpful resources are available at the companion website.

This title is part of the Applications of Motivational Interviewing Series, edited by Stephen Rollnick, William R. Miller, and Theresa B. Moyers.

Chris Riley-Tillman, PhD, Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology, University of Missouri

"Good relationships in school are important, and this book offers a way forward—down-to-earth guidelines for improving interactions with students.
