More About Me

About Me

The Training for New Trainers I've attended was the 1995 one in Sta. Margherita, Italy. That makes me one of the more 'seasoned' members of MINT, and I have learned a lot as active member of this organization over these years.

In 1997 I founded (together with Prof. Stephen Rollnick) the foundation Centre for Motivation and Change (www.motivationalinterview.nl) and facilitated many hundreds of workshops and projects, in many areas and in many countries and cultures accross the globe.

From 2008 - 2015 I have been actively involved in the organization of the ICMI (International Conference on Motivational Interviewing) biannual events, in which the current state of research into MI was shared and discussed with other researchers, practitioners and trainers.

After being a member of MINT's global management 2001 - 2008, and a Director Emeritus to the Boad of Directors 2008 - 2014, I now support the organization in less 'visible' roles, like videotaping the plenaries of the MINT Forum, and being a TNT lead trainer (lastly in Berlin, 2015) and in the role of TNT co-trainer reviewer and applicant reviewer for the 2016 TNT in Montreal (Canada) and the TNT 2017 in Malahide (Ireland).

Trainer Statement

As a MI trainer & coach I am enjoying the variety of contexts and formats in which I have been - and still am! - providing my services.

Coaching individuals and teams in becoming even better in MI than they already were and reaching the maximum of their potential and proficiency, or assisting specialized (medical) practitioners in improving their communication skills to be able to become an even more effective - and MI consistent - specialist for their clients and patients.

Hands-on interactive multi-day workshops, individual or group coaching, brief 'traditional' lectures/presentations for larger audiences, webinars, Skype-coaching and eLearning can all be formats which are useful for some, at some point.

Besides all of this, I lately am focussing on blended learning; a tailor-made mix of face-to-face and interactive, electronically facilitated ongoing learning projects. Please contact me if you want to discuss the options and possibilities for yourself and/or your organization.

For Dutch language visitors: click here for one of my recent large-audience presentations. 1500+ pharmacists listened while I presented on 'From Adherence to Shared Decision Making; an MI perspective'.  Dutchies & all others: visit and contact me at LinkedIn and/or FaceBook.

See you soon! Rik
