Description

Brief Integrated Motivational Intervention provides clinicians and specialist practitioners with a brief, evidence-based treatment approach for motivating clients, who have comorbid mental health and alcohol and drug misuse.

  • Combines CBT, motivational interviewing, and the authors’ own cognitive- behavioural integrated treatment (C-BIT) to engage clients in meaningful dialogue for change
  • Utilizes the short ‘window of opportunity’ when clients are admitted to psychiatric hospital or have recently relapsed, and helps clinicians to maximize the potential of this ‘teachable moment’
  • Helpful tools such as session-specific content, illustrative case material and easy-to-use worksheets facilitate implementation of the approach across a range of settings including inpatient, community, and residential
  • Developed by an expert team with many years of experience in both research and practice in the fields of psychosis and addiction
