In May 2014 the New School hosted a panel discussion titled “Demystifying Medical Marijuana in New York: Implications for Mental Health and Drug Treatment Providers.”
Introduced by the Center for Optimal Living’s Dr. Jenifer Talley and moderated by John Crepsac, LCSW, the speakers included: Gabriel Sayegh of the Drug Policy Alliance, Dr. Suneal Aggarwal of Americans for Safe Access, psychiatrist and author Dr. Julie Holland, and Dr. Andrew Tatarsky, founder and director of the Center for Optimal Living.
Here is the full-length video of this event:
In July 2013 the Center for Optimal Living’s Dr. Jenifer Talley was interviewed for Harm Reduction Television by Kenneth Anderson, a leading harm reductionist and founder of HAMS, the online harm reduction for alcohol network. The subjects they discussed included mindfulness, harm reduction, trauma and treatment.
The Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program (www.psychedelicprogram.com) aims to meet the needs of clients, the community, and mental health professionals. The program provides a setting where clients may speak about their experiences and gain psychotherapeutic support. Clinicians can also turn to this program to learn how to best work with patients who have a history of psychedelic use, to understand what are the potential benefits and harms associated with these substances, and how to provide optimal client care.
Mind-Body Practices in the Treatment of Substance Misuse: An Integrative Perspective
Presented at the New York State Psychological Association’s Division of Addictions Conference 2015.
Dr. Andrew Tatarsky on Integrative Harm Reduction
These four mindfulness tracks were recorded by the Center for Optimal Living’s Dr. Jenifer Talley from her clinical practice. They are taken with permission from her personal website at JeniferTalley.com. Thank you to the Center for Optimal Living’s Dr. John Pasagiannis for helping with the recording process for some of these tracks.
Guided Mindfulness Practices (35 minutes)
The first part of this track includes a 20-minute guided body scan that will help strengthen your connection to bodily sensations and the breath. Then follows the 5-minute SOBER Breathing Space that was developed as part of Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention. The final 10 minutes are a simple grounding and breathing practice using the five senses that can be incorporated throughout your day.
Brief Mindfulness Practice (10 minutes)
This brief mindfulness practice is designed to help connect you with what’s happening in the present moment. It may be used as a morning meditation to help get you started for the day. It can also be used throughout the day as a form of a “check-in” with yourself. This track was developed as part of Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention.
Mountain Meditation (11 minutes)
This mountain meditation was practiced while each person held one stone. It can be used at times when you need to feel more grounded and settled.
