About the Author:

Joseph Mehr has been involved with the Human Services field virtually since its inception.  In the 1960s he developed an NIMH Paraprofessional Manpower and Training grant which funded the development of a Human Service career series for the state of Illinois. In the 1970s he wrote, and obtained a U.S. Foundation for Higher Education grant to integrate Mental Health system training programs with the college and University systems, allowing many human service workers to acquire college credit for their ongoing employment training. He is a Clinical Psychologist with years of college teaching experience in Psychology and in Human Services, and has written well regarded college texts for both fields. In the late 1970s he wrote one of the first college level introductory texts in the field of Human Services.  In 2001 he retired from his full time work, and currently is actively engaged in clinical consultation.



Ronald Kanwischer is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at SIU School of Medicine.  He serves as the Outpatient Residency Services Coordinator, Director of Continuing Education for the Department of Psychiatry, as well as a psychotherapist and teacher.  He has over twenty-seven years of experience in the fields of substance abuse and mental health.  Mr. Kanwischer consults to a variety of service systems on clinical and client motivational issues including the Illinois Department of Human Services, community agencies, and the Criminal Justice system.  He is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, and teaches Motivational Interviewing in workshops and on an individual basis.
