“I am Suhaika Shereen from Malaysia and have attended two training initiatives organized by Emeritus Addiction Studies. By far both the trainings were the best trainings I’ve ever attended! The skills I’ve learned isn’t only for work but can also be applied to my everyday dealings. Love it!!

I fully recommend Emeritus courses to anyone who aspires to be a specialist in the field”

“Personal and professional growth depends on the awareness of an individual, knowing what needs to be improved and willingness to unlearn what does not work. Being in the Addiction field for more than 10yrs, I have been practicing what I learned as far as counseling and psychotherapy is concerned.

The training on MI opened my mind and made me reassess how I was with my own clients. The way Dr. Igor facilitated gave more insights on what I should be improving on and which approaches I still need to change. Words and the intonation do matter in applying MI. The skill of identifying the “gold nugget” is an area wherein I will be focusing more.

This will definitely enhance my counseling and psychotherapy skills.

I am Kanti Khatiwada, Nepali National, currently completing my Master degree in Addiction Rehabilitation Counseling at Namseoul University, Korea.

The 4 days program on the “Art of Motivational Interviewing” made possible by Emeritus Addiction Studies and Asia Metropolitan University, is indeed a very fruitful training initiative which helped the participants to enhance our knowledge on a systematic perspective of motivational interviewing and other motivational enhancement strategies. Dr. Igor Koutsenok’s brilliant lecture, video example, involvement of participants in group discussion, role plays and group presentations helped us practically learn different clinical skills to implement new strategies in helping people resolve their ambivalence, expressing empathy and avoiding argument, developing discrepancy, rolling with resistance, and supporting self-efficacy. After the the training, I felt inspired and enlightened that now equipped with the latest skills, I can hone my skills to help clients in expressing and understanding their needs; engage them in the treatment process and structured treatment sessions, select appropriate interventions and help them to find motivation focusing on a sustainable behavioral change.

I fully recommend addiction specialists in rehabilitation centres to be part of Emeritus initiatives.

Lastly, My special thanks to my professors Dr. Kim EunSil and Mr. Tay Bian How.
