Abstract: As a book that focuses specifically on the use of motivational interviewing (MI) in relation to social work, this is a very important contribution to the literature. Social workers may frequently think of MI as a method of working with clients experiencing addiction problems. However, Melinda Hohman, with the help of various contributors, highlights the value of this approach in working with a diverse range of issues including, for example, intimate partner violence and child protection. It is refreshing to see that the examples that are used span the micro-, mezzo- and macro-levels of social work practice. Thus the book is appealing to those working in diverse settings, whether with individuals, groups or communities.
