Empathy, Motivation, and Love in Action: A Conversation with Stephen Andrew

Recorded on March 1, 2022

Hosted by: David Prescott
Guest Speaker: Stephen R. Andrew LCSW, LADC, CCS, CGP

Stephen Andrew has, among other activities, spent decades working with men who perpetrate violence. Far from growing cynical or jaded, he has delved ever further into helping others to become their best selves. His practice focuses on deep empathy, compassion, and love, as well as the role of trust in the lives of people who have mistreated others. At the same time, he is easily one of the most sought out and influential motivational interviewing trainers in the world; one of a handful to whom other trainers turn for ideas and guidance.

This webinar conversation is for you if you want to advance your capacity to connect with clients of all backgrounds.
