"Thank you so much for the valuable information, but even more so for your gentle, enthusiastic, and genuine approach. I suspect that it comes from the MI Spirit, of course, but think also very much from you."
"The collaborative nature of the course was super dope. Marian was awesome."
"This by far, was one of the best courses I have taken. Marian was so helpful, excited to teach, and truly passionate about the topic which helped make the session so accessible, and concurrent throughout which helped me learn so much more than if I was just being lectured to. I would recommend this course to everyone willing to learn MI."
"Marian's coaching style was a great model for how MI should look when put into action. Her open and receptive attitude toward questions and various points of view were extremely welcoming and made it easier to fully engage in the course."
"[Marian] did a great job of breaking down MI and what it looks like when it's applied. The visuals (videos and modeling) were very helpful. I've had it previously with another trainer but Marian did a great job of presenting the materials."
"The open forum of today's training was very helpful for cultivating a learning environment."
"Marian did an amazing job at being prepared in the course material. She also found the perfect balance of teaching the course material and providing enough time for questions and group discussions. She was kind and did great at meeting everyone where they were at."
"I really appreciated the focus on the Spirit of Motivational Interviewing; that's something that wasn't discussed when I've been taught about Motivational Interviewing in the past. You were a great teacher and very mindful of our experience as learners! Thank you for sharing your expertise."
"Thank you SO much for hosting such a great course. I truly learned a lot and am excited to practice some of these concepts in clinic with the patients I serve. The slides were great! So easy to follow and will be an excellent resource while continuing to practice these skills in clinic."
"I really enjoyed the interactive portions of this training and the ways in which we had the opportunities to role play."
