Media Shelf: Angela Wood’s The Motivational Interviewing Workbook

Assistant Professor of Social Work Dr. Angela Wood’s new book, The Motivational Interviewing Workbook: Exercises to Decide What You Want and How to Get There, was released this past fall—and it couldn’t be more timely.

Between COVID-19, the economic downtown, natural disasters, and other world events over this past year, it’s hard to imagine anyone who hasn’t felt some emotional toll. And when feeling a bit down, it can become even easier to get stuck in a rut. This self-help book seeks to motivate readers and, in particular, anyone who is struggling to make a life-style change.

Wood, who is one of two members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers in Louisiana in addition to being a faculty member at Southeastern, uses concepts from motivational interviewing and a plentiful amount of exercises to guide readers through the change process. Along with mainstream audiences, this book can also be useful for health coaches and behavioral health providers in practice.

Wood’s The Motivational Interviewing Workbook is available in both paperback and e-book formats through
