Motivational Interviewing in HIV Care

 It is no exaggeration to say that motivational interviewing (MI) has transformed the culture of clinical practice and the way healthcare practitioners and researchers understand behavior change. MI, as an empirically supported therapeutic approach, has grown all across prevention, intervention, treatment, and research settings. Nowhere is the need to target behavior change more urgent than in people living with HIV.

MI is a collaborative, person-centered clinical method that fosters a constructive practitioner-patient relationship and facilitates behavior change through eliciting and strengthening motivation for change. MI can be implemented as a stand-alone brief intervention, a prelude to treatment, or a platform for ongoing care. While MI has been shown to promote behavior change in a variety of healthcare settings and health behaviors in diverse cultures and communities, from substance use, safer sex, physical activity, medication and treatment adherence, more recently there has been an explosion of research that tailors MI to HIV care.

This original and compassionate book, Motivational Interviewing in HIV Care, brings together researchers and healthcare practitioners who have considerably contributed to the science and clinical practice of MI in HIV care. It provides current, accessible review of the current status of the MI interventions, their clinical applications, and the evidence that supports them.

Motivational Interviewing in HIV Care is essential reading for workers in the field of HIV, who will benefit from up-to-date research reviews and practical applications of MI across the continuum of HIV care.
