Evidence Based Implementation


The founder of BCC, Dr. Sylvie Naar, is a leader in the field of Motivational Interviewing research and practice. She has extensively studied how to use MI with different populations and target behaviors, as well as how to implement MI within organizations and best teach trainees.  She is the author of Motivational Interviewing with Adolescents and Young Adults and has a new book in press on the integration of  Motivational Interviewing with other approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy and skills training.

We are a diverse company with trainers from different ethnic, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds who are members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT). Our experience is a unique blend of academic rigor and community-based real-world practice.

Our training is highly flexible and adaptive to the unique needs of your organization.
