Successful management of chronic diseases (such as cardiovascular pathologies, diabetes, obesity, COPD, chronic pain, etc.) typically requires that patients are motivated to make often significant lifestyle behavior changes in order to improve health outcomes, quality of life and well-being.


Clinical Psychology has developed many useful motivational strategies based on different theoretical and practical approaches (such as motivational interviewing, transtheoretical model of change, self-management, mHealth monitoring and treatment strategies, Chronic Care Model, etc.).


The major aim of the present Research Topic is to collect new evidence, clinical experiences, reviews and opinion articles about the current practice of Clinical and Health Psychology for enhancing motivation in patients with chronic conditions since motivation is essential to patient adherence to long-term monitoring and treatment protocols as well as ensuring functional patient empowerment and engagement.
