Training and Development Specialist – Pharmacy
“As a seasoned LCSW, I found myself totally immersed in Stéphanie’s masterful grasp of MI and her incredibly engaging teaching/coaching style. While familiar with MI prior to the two-day workshop, I thoroughly benefited from the theoretical deep dive and many opportunities for role-playing and guided practice. The diverse, multi-disciplinary group of attendees provided for a rich learning experience. I came away from Stéphanie’s workshop with strengthened skills and motivated to use more MI in my daily practice with clients.”
