Learning Communities

For the foreseeable future, Stephen Andrew will be leading his usual Wednesday morning Learning Community virtually instead of in his office on Middle Street. He has also added a Thursday morning session to accommodate more participants and more folks' schedules.

A third meeting time on Monday at one in the afternoon which will be co-hosted by John Brelsford and Sara Schieffelin.

We have just added a fourth scheduled learning community on Friday mornings at 10:00 am which will be led by Jill Findley and Stephen Andrew.


These groups will utilize Zoom Video teleconferencing technology to connect a small group of practitioners to share issues arising in their own work, participate in real plays and group exercises, develop and pursue Motivational Interviewing improvement goals, and receive supportive feedback about their Motivational Interviewing work.

The groups will be facilitated by Stephen Andrew, John Brelsford, Sara Schieffelin, and Jill Findley. All are experienced Motivational Interviewing trainers and members of MINT (Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers).


John Brelsford and Sara Schieffelin will be facilitating one group each week:

  • Monday early afternoon from 1:00 - 2:00 pm Eastern Time (US)

Stephen Andrew will be facilitating two group meetings each week:

  • Wednesday from 8:30 to 9:30 am Eastern Time (US)

  • Thursday morning from 8:45 to 9:45 am Eastern Time (US)


Jill Findley and Stephen Andrew will be facilitating one group each week:

  • Friday morning from 10:00 - 11:00 am Eastern Time (US)

Please feel free to drop in as often as you wish on the morning that best fits your own schedule.

This group has a sliding-scale fee of $20-$35 per session. If this would be a burden, please contact us so that we can work out a way to get you support and camaraderie in your practice.

Please get in touch (heti@gwi.net) to get on our group list for the invitation to the online meeting.
