MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING WITH ADOLESCENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS – NAAR-KING, SYLVIE/

About this product

Synopsis
Qigong is an ancient Chinese art of self regulation, improvement of one’s health and communication with different forms of life. Zhong Yuan Qigong (ZYQ) represents the highest levels of Qigong. It has a seven thousand year-old lineage and is comprised of the wisdom and knowledge of Qigong masters from many generations. The methods of ZYQ allow a human improve one’s health, reach longevity and increase the quality of life. This is the first book on ZYQ from the series “Enter Your Inner World.” Reading it and practicing the exercises can help you realize that all forms of life in the universe constitute a whole, and that the universe is a living organism which we are a part of. ZYQ is a branch of science through which you can learn how to develop your body, energy, and spirit. This knowledge thus leads to the development of individual and evolution of human race. The purpose of Qigong is to understand what Life is by opening our eyes wider to see our world in a different light. Through this system of knowledge and healing, we can open our hearts to understand the many hidden aspects of the Earth and the Universe. Practicing Qigong can help us realize that all living creatures in the universe constitute a whole, and that the Universe is a living organism of which we are a part. Similarly, our planet Earth is alive, just like us. Qigong helps us understand the relationship between the whole and its individual parts, while enabling us to establish a connection between them. As humans, we have a natural desire to know more about our place in this huge, living Universe. We also want to know the nature of our own individual lives. In order to understand how to maintain good health, we need to comprehend the nature of life and the various forms that it is capable of taking. For this purpose, we can say that Qigong is a branch of science designed to deal with the very notion of Life and its roots. Through its use, the practitioner can enhance the quality of his or her life and look forward to a brighter future. It opens the gates to a new reality and allows you to understand that you are a part of the Universe1-a cosmic being. But, first and foremost, you will learn to relax-not only at the physical level, but also in your mind and consciousness. Here you will learn the philosophical concepts behind the development of humanity as a species, the connection that human beings have to the Earth2 and the Universe, fundamental principles of self-regulation, and conscious and harmonious interaction with the environment. This foundation will activate the resources for improving your health and allow you to view the world and your place in it in a different light. This stage allows you to open additional channels of perception beyond the five known senses, and you will find a completely new method of learning known as knowledge transplantation. You will experience the feeling of different Qi structures, and learn how to regulate them through your consciousness. You can also master different methods of increasing your inner energy and cleansing your body from bad Qi. You will learn a number of self-healing exercises, increase your creativity and prolong your life. If you have the courage to step onto this path, you will be able to see for yourself your evolution into a better human being. ZYQ is free from any branch of religion, ideology, or politics. Its exercises are suitable for people of all ages. The practice of this system helps people become immune to stress, achieve inner balance, and attain true happiness. The book is intended for general readers as well as for qigong practitioners. This pragmatic guide spells out how to use motivational interviewing (MI) to have productive conversations about behavior change with adolescents and young adults in any clinical context. Filled with vivid examples, sample dialogues, and “dos and don’ts,” the book shows how conducting MI from a developmentally informed standpoint can help practitioners quickly build rapport with young patients, enhance their motivation to make healthy changes, and overcome ambivalence. Experts on specific adolescent problems describe MI applications in such key areas as substance abuse, smoking, sexual risk taking, eating disorders and obesity, chronic illness management, and externalizing and internalizing behavior problems. This book will be important reading for clinical psychologists, addictions treatment specialists, social workers, counselors, and psychiatrists; also of interest to pediatricians, nurses, and other health care providers who treat adolescents. It may also serve as a supplemental text in graduate-level courses.

Reviews
“A beautifully written, well-organized, and immensely substantive text on collaborating with young people who are struggling with serious challenges. I highly recommend this book to anyone who works with teenagers and young adults. Readers will benefit from its unique blend of spirit and skill, lively illustrations, and universal lessons. I guarantee that this book will not disappoint!” – Andrew Malekoff, Executive Director, North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center, Roslyn Heights, New York, USA “Naar-King and Suarez remind us that the more you try to persuade and direct, the more a young person tends to resist. Want more productive conversations about behavior change with the young adults you work with? Want to stop the pathologizing of adolescents and help them maximize their potential? Look to this book for all-important ‘how-tos’ and helpful strategies.” – Michael D. Clark, Director, Center for Strength-Based Strategies, Mason, Michigan, USA “Filling a critical void, this book answers the call of practitioners and scholars who for years have been asking for a clinical text on how to use MI with youth. Naar-King and Suarez describe the developmental context and provide many easy-to-read examples of using each MI principle and strategy with adolescents and young adults. The authors have also drawn together some of the most prominent figures in MI to describe applications for specific populations and settings. This book would make an excellent stand-alone text for a course on MI or a great supplemental text for any course on clinical interventions with youth.”–Keith Herman, PhD, Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology, University of Missouri “Naar-King and Suarez remind us that the more you try to persuade and direct, the more a young person tends to resist.

Clark, MSW, Director, Center for Strength-Based Strategies, Mason, Michigan; member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) “MI has such a strong theoretical and empirical base that it should become a standard part of training in the mental health and health fields. This book provides an excellent introduction to MI and a compelling overview of applications with adolescents, which is a developing field worthy of continued study. It presents ethical and skill-development guidelines that should be required reading for anyone interested in using MI with adolescents and young adults.”–Bradley H. Smith, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of South Carolina “A beautifully written, well-organized, and immensely substantive book on collaborating with young people who are struggling with serious challenges.

The book is well organized and offers enough detail to enable practitioners to grasp the subtleties that can make the difference between being effective or not. The useful examples, tips, and chapter summaries make it a handy reference not only for counselors-in-training, but also for experienced counselors, educators, and others working with this client group. Also offered are very useful, practical models of how MI can be adapted to particular behavioral issues, such as eating disorders and smoking cessation. An indispensable guide for anyone working with issues of behavior change in young people.”–Ariana Faris, MSc, private practice, Cardiff, United Kingdom; member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT) “MI has such a strong theoretical and empirical base that it should become a standard part of training in the mental health and health fields.

Clark, MSW, Director, Center for Strength-Based Strategies, Mason, Michigan “MI seems to provide a missing link for clients who find themselves ambivalent not only in relation to the therapeutic input offered, but also about the adult world that offers it, and their own changing role within that world. Divided into three logical sections, this book sets out to provide a comprehensive introduction to the use of MI with adolescents and young adults, exploring how the core principles of MI can be applied to this age group and some of the common difficulties with which they present. Writing in a clear and pragmatic style, Sylvie Naar and Mariann Suarez achieve just that, and the resulting book proved to be easy to read, as well as being a useful and informative clinical guide….Clinicians from a variety of professional backgrounds who are new to the theory of MI and are seeking different ways to engages adolescents and young people in therapeutic settings will find this to be an accessible guide. The clarity of structure and helpful chapter summaries make the book easy to pick up, even in the midst of a busy clinic.” “Motivational interviewing was originally developed as a technique to elicit change in the adult substance abusing population. However, recent practice has demonstrated efficacy with younger populations with a variety of risky behaviors and mental health concerns. This guide is extremely user friendly in that each chapter has a summary of motivational interviewing dos and don’ts….The authors provide strategies to incorporate motivational interviewing techniques into other therapeutic approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy and extrinsic motivation approaches. The authors present this therapeutic approach in an easy-to-read format with tables, acronyms, and catchy phrases….This manual is an important addition to any therapeutic library.” School Social Work Journa l “Naar-King and Suarez remind us that the more you try to persuade and direct, the more a young person tends to resist.
