Based on Motivational Interviewing, 3rd Edition, this two-part DVD set provides descriptions and demonstrations of the new four-process method of Motivational Interviewing (MI), a person centered-clinical style for strengthening personal motivation and commitment to change among treatment participants. The DVDs are accompanied by downloadable resources containing a detailed menu with commentary, and annotated transcripts of all 14 interviews.

Changes in terminology in the 4th (2023) edition of Motivational Interviewing
These demonstration DVDs are equally applicable with the 3rd and 4th editions Motivational Interviewing. The four processes or tasks of MI remain the same: engaging, focusing, evoking and planning. Three of the components of the underlying spirit of MI are unchanged – partnership, acceptance, and compassion – and we broadened the fourth from evocation to empowerment emphasizing clients’ own strengths and autonomy. The “OARS” are still Open question, Affirmation, Reflection and Summary, and in the 4th edition we distinguish between simple affirmations (commenting positively on a specific response) and complex affirmations that highlight clients’ enduring strengths and positive attributes. What was previously called the counselor’s “righting reflex” is now termed the fixing reflex, and the prior “running head start” technique is more aptly described as the pendulum technique. We also gave greater attention to strategic directional questions, reflections, affirmations and summaries as demonstrated in these DVD interviews. By 2023 when the 4th edition was released, MI was already being used in a much wider range of helping professions and had also expanded beyond in-person conversations to include remote delivery through audio, video, and digital media.
