We're celebrating 200 episodes!

Today, we’re celebrating our 200th episode of Behavioral Health Today! In this episode, Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Michael Klinkner. Michael is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 22 years of experience helping children, adolescents, and adults in therapy. Michael has specialty training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Neurolinguistic Programming. Currently, Michael is working with Evolve Counseling in Arizona where he treats a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and ADHD, focusing primarily on children, teen, and adolescent populations. Together Graham and Michael discuss the current pressures of teens, how to have tough conversations, connecting with your child by building routines into your day, a foundation for your child’s consumption of social media, and the importance of family values and the discussion of those as a family system. All behavior is communication, but if we can give them a different way to do it by coaching the parents up and tooling them, we can see changes actually occur.
Our social landscape in our environment contributes to the biases that we hold. So self-examination work is really important to understand yourself so you can understand others in a deeper empathetic way. The spirit of motivational interviewing can be used in such a way that can lower barriers of the systems that we work in as to interface with clients, support the clients where they're at, and find a way to curate change that will be longstanding. In this episode, Dr. Erin Elmore speaks with Marya Wright, LCSW. Marya is a nationally distinguished social worker, consultant, international trainer, and facilitator with experience in organizational leadership, child welfare services, and curriculum development. She is the President and CEO of Wright Community Services, LLC, a company that strives to empower system-involved families through awareness, services and education while also providing consultation, training, and system specific facilitation to agencies that services these communities.
