"We have contracted with Dr. Barnett for a couple of years now to provide Motivational Interviewing training for our school mental health staff and she has not disappointed!  She provides an engaging training, which utilizes role plays and exercises which help bring Motivational Interviewing to life.  Out attendees have left very positive feedback about the training and have indicated that they feel more equipped to begin utilizing the skills and express interest in wanting to learn even more."  -Stacy Alvey, Mental Health Coordinator, Antelope Valley Special Education Local Planning Area (SELPA)
