• The Scarlet Sisterhood: Treating Partners of Sex Addicts

    Addiction is a disease, end of discussion . . . right? As practitioners within the field of behavioral health and wellness, we have all heard the message, loud and clear.

  • Evaluating a Competency-Based Supervision Approach for Motivational Interviewing

    Motivational interviewing (MI) is a well-known, evidence-based, brief counseling approach for substance use disorders (SUDs) that combines person-centered principles with strategies for enhancing motivation for change (Miller & Rollnick, 2012). Counselors using MI help their clients talk themselves into change by exploring and developing their motivations for change and lessening and resolving their arguments against it.
