“As a Motivational Interviewing trainer, I have received many questions about how to use the skills and techniques of MI when time is short.
5 Minute MI provides more ideas, explanation and depth to this subject, which will be welcomed by dietitians and other health care providers. This book is well written and clear, with many sample conversations with clients illustrating those ideas. Reading it I found new ways of understanding and teaching MI, which is certainly a breath of fresh air. I highly recommend this book for dietitians and others working with clients to move in the direction of health behavior change.”

--Ellen R. Glovsky, PhD,RD,LDN, Motivational Interviewing Trainer/Speaker/Author, Member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers. www.trainingwithdrellen.com

"The beauty of this book is two-fold: one, the concepts of Motivational Interviewing are explained in a way that help the reader process and apply MI in their everyday work and two, the examples presented are done so in a weight-neutral, non-shaming way demonstrating a kinder, more empathetic approach to patient care. This book offers clear, concise guidance on ways to develop your MI skills to enhance your current practice and support the development of meaningful connections with your patients."

--Angelina Moore Maia, PhD, RDN, LDN, Member, Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers


"Dawn Clifford has the amazing ability to explain the big picture of MI and provide the step-by-step dialogue of what to say. I am in love with 5 Minute MI because it is packed with real-world examples that you can start using immediately. Regardless if you are new to MI or have been using it for years, this course will accelerate your MI skills."
