Publisher's Summary

Making and maintaining lasting changes in nutrition and fitness is not easy for anyone. Yet the communication style of a health professional can make a huge difference. This audiobook presents the proven counseling approach known as motivational interviewing (MI) and shows exactly how to use it in day-to-day interactions with clients. MI offers simple yet powerful tools for helping clients work through ambivalence, break free of diets and quick-fix solutions, and overcome barriers to change. Extensive sample dialogues illustrate specific ways to enhance conversations about meal planning and preparation, exercise, body image, disordered eating, and more. Reproducible forms and handouts can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size. Instructors requesting a desk copy from Guilford will be emailed a link to supplemental PowerPoint slides and exam questions.

This audiobook is in the Applications of Motivational Interviewing series, edited by Stephen Rollnick, William R. Miller, and Theresa B. Moyers.

Motivational Interviewing in Nutrition and Fitness is wonderfully narrated by Kathleen Godwin. All figures and handouts referenced in the audiobook are included in the supplementary PDF, which is available for download with purchase of the audiobook.

Please note: when you purchase this title, the accompanying pdf will be available in your audible library along with the audio.

Good content and info for fitness and health

I’m about 3 chapters in and so far it’s great content and I’m going to use it in my practice.
I’m distracted slightly by the narrators voice being very robotic and monotone.

A must read if you’re in the fitness & wellness field.

I can definitely imagine myself listening to this several times to absorb this style of coaching. It seems it’s become not just de rigeur for people in the field of fitness and health but it is just good info to know overall.

Great to learn MI

Very good for learning motivational interviewing. Lots of dialogue and examples. Not as technical as other popular MI books.

As an RDN I love this training!!

I have 2 and 1/2 year of experience as an RDN in the outpatient setting. I did get trained on MI in undergrad, but a lot of the concepts were hard to apply so early on before having more experience with working in the field. I found myself struggling to help the people I am working with find internationally driven motivation that lasts. Many of the people in my program retuned with shame and “failure” to follow the plan they agreed to try. I am SOO glad I picked up this book. The many examples throughout were so incredibly helpful and so different than how my sessions were going. After finishing the book I have to say IT WORKS! In two major ways. 1) my clients are soo much more responsive and motivated to set their OWN goals fairly soon within the sessions 2) I feel so much less pressure to solve all their problems but still feel positively impactful. I highly recommend this book for all people in the health and wellness field of care. I’m about to start the book over again to help drill the principles in. I never want to forget what I learned. Thank you to the author!!

Paradigm Shifting

I'm in a health coaching course that prepares graduates to sit for the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaches. The facilitator highly recommended this book. She has no affiliation with the authors.

This book, especially the audio version, is life-changing. Professionally and personally, I have improved relationships with clients and loved ones. In a nutshell, the compassionate communication skills of Motivational Interviewing applied to Nutrition and Fitness help anyone be a better human being. I don't think that's hyperbole. I feel like a better human being for being able to support fellow humans in their life's quests.

The narrator does an excellent job. The accompanying PDF is quite useful as a quick reminder of the book's concepts.

Essential listening for health professionals

As a nutritionist I've found the advice in this book invaluable for my private clients and for motivating individuals
in community weight loss programmes I run for the NHS. I've had training in this field but I found this book
so useful as it gave me many examples of how to gently point conversations with patients into the direction of change.

Full of information

This book has it all, if not too much 😂....
I've really enjoyed it...But, quite long so I've had to skip a few minutes here and there. But, it has all the information - the examples are great too. highly recommended.

Practical and engaging book

Just the knowledge I needed as a personal trainer and Sports massage therapist. I have learnt a lot how to inspire my clients rather then talking at them and pushim them to make behaviour change that they are not ready yet.

Speed up to 1.1

Guys if you get this book speed it up to 1.1 it will help you so much 😂 it’s so monotone the speed helps the voice have a bit more upbeat
The information is amazing and super practical and well thought out. Comes with PDF to help you read and follow in chapters. Great information better than reading a book about MI because they give examples and then tell you what’s going on. Very good.

Worth the effort

The information and structure were very good. The tone, expression and accent of the narrator did not appeal to me and put me off listening.
