Trainer Statement

 I was first exposed to Motivational Interviewing (MI) in 1985 and in role play caught by the way counselor language shaped client respons. In my work with inmates at a prison I experienced that my use of MI helped in consultations with clients. Since then I have practiced MI, done research on MI effectiveness and on how to learn MI. I have trained MI in primary care, correctional staff and university students. I feel honored and lucky to be a part of the MI development in Sweden and internationally.

Training Interests
Training and coaching based on coded sessions ideally recorded by help of simulated clients. Also MI implementation and feedback to organizations on MI practice on group level.
