In this Optimal Live Talk Drs. Andrew Tatarsky and Jenifer Talley discuss their upcoming Harm Reduction Psychotherapy trainings and Certificate Program. They provide an overview of the main principles of harm reduction and its application in psychotherapy and go on to describe the paradigm shift happening in the addiction treatment field and the need to expand beyond an abstinence-only approach to addressing problematic drug and alcohol use. They also review the 7 Therapeutic Tasks of integrative harm reduction psychotherapy and the importance of creating safety in the therapeutic relationship so that clients can work towards establishing their own positive change pathway.
