Department of Counseling Psychology hosting annual Martins Workshop, and Wampold Festschrift

April 24, 2017

UW-Madison’s Department of Counseling Psychology will be hosting its annual Dr. John R. Martins Clinical Workshop and related events April 27-28.

This year’s workshop is presented by Dr. Terri Moyers, a renowned expert from the University of New Mexico on motivational interviewing. Moyers will present a three-hour workshop on this topic on Friday morning, April 28 at the DeLuca Forum in the Discovery Building on campus.

In addition, this year’s event will also include a Festschrift to honor and recognize the outstanding career of Bruce Wampold, who arrived on the UW-Madison campus in 1991 and retired last year as the Patricia L. Wolleat Professor of Counseling Psychology. Wampold is director of the Research Institute at Modum Bad Psychiatric Center in Vikersund, Norway.

Wampold’s seminal book, “The Great Psychotherapy Debate: Models, Methods and Findings,” was first published in 2001 and shook up the field of psychotherapy by demonstrating that there was no evidence to back up prevailing assumptions about the most effective ways to deliver mental health services. Wampold and Zac Imel released a second edition of this book in January 2015.

“The Department of Counseling Psychology continues to be grateful to Dr. John Martins, whose generous estate gift allows us to offer critical clinical training annually to our students and to the community.” says Mindi Thompson, an associate professor with the Department of Counseling Psychology who helped organize this year’s events.

All events are open to the public, although the workshop portion of the event requires pre-registration and costs $50 for those not affiliated with the department (3 CEUs are available).
