Celebrating the publishing of my book with sushi and my wonderful wife!

Connecting Paradigms: A Trauma-Informed & Neurobiological Framework for Motivational Interviewing Implementation provides an innovative approach to helping those struggling with past trauma to make critical life changes and heal from their pain and suffering. Scientific understanding of the brain, the impact of trauma, and research around behavioral change has grown exponentially over the last several decades. This knowledge is challenging and transforming thinking around how we provide mental health and substance abuse education, medical care, criminal justice, and social work. Connecting Paradigms presents an integrated model combining research in neurobiology, trauma, behavioral change, harm reduction, and Motivational Interviewing into a practical skill set easily implemented across a variety of settings and professions.

Had an amazing two-day training with HIV providers in San Antonio. The second time this year working with this group and I love my new friends in Texas!
