This chapter expands upon motivational interviewing (MI) techniques presented in the prior chapter. It helps practitioners tailor MI strategies based upon the level of motivation for change a patient has, on a continuum of low motivation to high motivation. This chapter covers how to also use MI skills and strategies to sustain a behavioral change after such change is implemented. The language of MI such as “sustain talk” and “change talk” is explored. It also describes challenges that may arise in caring for patients with HIV, including challenging clinical encounters such as nonadherence to antiretroviral therapy. The chapter provides strategies for navigating these encounters.
