Dr. Jenifer Talley and Dr. Andrew Tatarsky discuss coming to harm reduction, the evolution of Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy (IHRP), the Center for Optimal Living and the One Year Certificate Program in Harm Reduction psychotherapy.
In this program, students will learn about the origins and history of harm reduction psychotherapy along with the paradigm shift from an abstinence-only approach to a more collaborative and engaging model to address the spectrum of problematic substance use and other behaviors. There will be in-depth skill practice and opportunities for consultation and supervision. Classes are co-taught by Dr. Andrew Tatarsky and Dr. Jenifer Talley. Special guest speakers also contribute to the class and offers students the opportunity to engage with experts in the field.
View our facebook page to stay up to date on events and more live Q&As in the coming weeks. We will teach and demonstrate all of the elements of IHRP so you can bring it into your lives and practices. We hope these will be a way to share our work with, learn from and stay connected to our global harm reduction community. Stay tuned!
