Bespoke Training Options

Trainings can be custom tailored to your organization’s needs, whether it be multi-day introductory or advanced trainings, on-going coding, coaching and feedback or conversations about improving client engagement and retention. Contact me to discuss what you’re looking to accomplish.

Coding & Coaching

Research shows that Motivational Interviewing is best learned via one on one feedback and coaching. Adam can offer your organization individualized coaching and feedback in order to help your practitioners.

If you assume that there is no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, that there are opportunities to change things, then there is a possibility that you can contribute to making a better world.
