Chapter 13 explores the applications of motivational interviewing (MI) in diverse clinical settings and diverse populations. It covers the general approach to screening, screening for unhealthy alcohol use, and screening for high-risk sexual behaviors using clinical scenarios illustrating the MI-consistent approach, core MI skills, and strategies. The other topics of discussion include chronic pain, eating disorders, substance use in pregnancy, palliative care, psychiatric disorders, and substance use disorders and other addictions. Clinical scenarios illustrate the application of MI in these clinical contexts. Another focus of this chapter addresses cultural factors and MI. The challenges of integrating MI into using an electronic medical record and electronic communication are examined and practical suggestions about how to manage them are highlighted. A personal reflection on learning and applying MI in a specific clinical setting is shared.
