(from the chapter) In this chapter, we explore the fundamentals of motivation and change, first by presenting prior commonly held views about motivation and change in addictions treatment, then by describing Motivational Interviewing and the Stages of Change model, and finally by examining what Motivational Interviewing and other psychotherapies have in common. We end with suggestions for teaching and supervision. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved) (chapter)
