Abstract
"Since childbirth became a medicalized - and usually hospitalized - event a century ago, women's and families' psychosocial needs have been relegated to a somewhat peripheral role within the clinically focussed hierarchy of medical care. This text reinstates psychosocial issues as a primary focus of care, together with clinical excellence. Family-centred care is a familiar phrase in today's maternity services, with professional guidelines and hospital policies including the term in their care protocols -- however, few definitions, and no specific standards, for family-centred care exist. While all caregivers and care services are likely to define their care as sensitive to women's needs, and family-centred, the actual implementation of a family-centred approach - despite it being a current fashion in care - is still inadequate. This book clearly defines family-centred perinatal care, and outlines how truly family-centred care can, and should, be implemented, and how, and where, this has been done"--Provided by publisher.

Abstract
This video focuses on the specific skill of recognizing and responding to client language during motivational interviewing sessions. It features both short (3-4 minutes) and longer (10 minutes) video demonstrations of such techniques as the importance and confidence rulers, use of selective reflection, responding to sustain talk and increasing the momentum of change talk. This DVD was created as a specialized learning resource in Project ELICIT, a randomized controlled trial that demonstrated that client language about substance use could be influenced by specialized training of their clinicians. It features 11 different clinicians and clients in a variety of settings including primary care, EAP and formal substance abuse treatment. Each segment is introduced by Drs. William Miller, Theresa Moyers and Jennifer Manuel, who also provide commentary about learning opportunities in these clips. With over 90 minutes of video this DVD is an excellent primer for clinicians wishing to become more proficient in this core skill in motivational interviewing.--Publisher
