(from the chapter) Every therapist knows that motivation is a vital element of change. Nowhere is this clearer than in the treatment of addictive behaviors. In this chapter, the authors examine what research has revealed that is of use to the practicing clinician in enhancing motivation for change. The summary is organized around 3 general topics: therapeutic style, motivational techniques, and the broader context of behavior.
