This may be the single most important book you ever buy during your medical training. Rotations come and go, exams come and go, but regardless of specialty, patient-care will be at the heart of your practice. It is no exaggeration to say that motivational interviewing (MI) has transformed the way doctors engage with patients, families, and colleagues alike. MI is among the most powerful tools available to promote behavior change in patients. In an age of chronic diseases (diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, obesity), behavior change is no longer limited to substance use or the field of psychiatry - maladaptive choices and behaviors that negatively impact health outcomes are rampant. There is an explosion of research projects using MI or adaptations of MI in the behavioral health medicine field in the past decade. Hospitalizations can't make people change. How marvelous is it that an evidence-based health behavior change approach (MI) can help people change the outcomes of their illnesses and the course of their lives. This therapeutic approach is not a form of psychotherapy and is not the stuff of cobwebs and old leather couches. MI is readily integrated into regular ward rounds and office visits and provides an effective and efficient approach to patients clinical encounters. Written by experts in the field and medical trainees across medicine, this is the first MI guide of its kind. Its explores how MI enhances contact with patients from every level of training, following an accessible, succinct approach. This book covers the application of MI method and skills into practice and also includes numerous clinical scenarios, personal reflections and online animated clinical vignettes (video clips) that share the challenges and successes the authors have focused. Furthermore this book is endorsed by the pioneers of MI: William R. Miller & Stephen Rollnick.

Mit »Millenium« schließt Tom Holland an seinen weltweiten Erfolg »Persisches Feuer« an. Anno Domini 900: Von drei Himmelsrichtungen durch unerbittliche Feinde bedrängt, während in der vierten Richtung nur der Ozean lag, schien es, dass der christlichen Bevölkerung keinerlei Spielraum mehr blieb. Und im Schatten des Jahrtausendwechsels befürchteten viele, dass der Antichrist erscheinen würde, um die Welt in Blut zu ertränken und ihr Ende anzukünden. Doch das Christentum brach nicht zusammen. Vielmehr wurde in den Erschütterungen jener furchtbaren Zeiten eine neue Zivilisation geschmiedet. In weit ausholendem epischem Zugriff, der uns von der Kreuzigung Christi zum Ersten Kreuzzug mitnimmt, vom Prunk Konstantinopels zu den trostlosen Küsten Kanadas, ist »Millennium« die brillante Darstellung einer schicksalsträchtigen Revolution: dem Auftauchen Westeuropas als einer unterscheidbaren, expansionistischen Macht.
