W. Miles Cox and Eric Klinger are pleased to announce the publication of the 2nd edition of their Handbook of Motivational Counseling: Goal-Based Approaches to Assessment and Intervention with Addiction and Other Problems (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011; http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470749261.html).
As in the first edition, they strove for comprehensive coverage of empirically supported concepts and evidence on principles of motivation, the development of motivational problems, motivational assessment tools, and the most effective, evidence-based individual and group interventions. The new edition incorporates extensive new empirical research published in this rapidly evolving field. With its international team of contributors, the book constitutes the most comprehensive and updated guide to the nature of motivation, how motivational problems develop, how they can be identified, and how they can be corrected. In addition to the significant revision of all retained first-edition chapters to reflect recent developments--with concepts and applications that range from basic personality to clinical, work, and corrections settings--five chapters are new, encompassing motive-based approaches, motivational counseling with the dually diagnosed, cognitive and motivational retraining, meaning-centered counseling, and motivation in sport.
