The inaugural issue of Motivational Interviewing: Training, Research, Implementation, Practice (MITRIP; the journal of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers) is now available online. An open-access, “author-friendly” journal, MITRIP accepts submissions of all kinds related to motivational interviewing (MI) practice, training, implementation, and research: qualitative as well as quantitative studies, case presentations, descriptions of innovations in MI practice or training, and theoretical or conceptual articles, as well as informal contributions related to the activities of MINT members worldwide. Submissions are invited from any author, regardless of affiliation, who wishes to contribute to the ongoing conversation about MI.

This new guide (published in 2012) is a companion to Motivating Offenders to Change: A Guide for Probation and Parole. Whereas the earlier guide detailed the application of MI in correctional settings, this guide focuses on implementation issues. After a very brief overview of MI, more detailed chapters cover how MI is learned, supervising and coaching to support implementation, assessing MI skills, and organization-level planning to develop MI skills in a correctional setting. The guide is very readable and appears to provide enough information to assist experienced agency leaders in identifying and working through relevant issues in successful implementation of MI.
