Motivational Interviewing with Stephanie Wahab 

Please join us for the upcoming training, Deepening the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing with Stephanie Wahab PhD on Wednesday, September 26th from 8:30am-12:00pm (registration starts at 8:00). The training cost is $60 - Includes three CEUs from ACCBO. All proceeds go towards the VOA Al Forthan Scholarship to support students who come from families impacted by addiction.

Whether you are practicing motivational interviewing or not, establishing a strong rapport with the people you work with is key to being an effective helper. Behavioral research has consistently demonstrated that the relationship with clients is as, if not more important than the modality or intervention. This training will focus on growing the spirit of compassion, acceptance, partnership and evocation in your practice.
