Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy in Spanish and Chinese

March 6, 2010

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to let you know that the following paper of mine is now available in Spanish and Chinese for free download on my website,, under Publications:

Harm reduction psychotherapy: Extending the reach of traditional substance use treatment. (2003). Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment. Vol. 25, pp. 249-256.

These translations were done for three-day trainings that I was invited to give in Santiago, Chile in 2008 and Kunming, China this past October. These invitation trainings, among others to Poland, Ukraine, North Carolina and Chicago in the past year, reflect a growing interest in integrative harm reduction psychotherapy in the international harm reduction and substance use treatment communities.

Check back to my blog,, for reports on these very exciting trainings and the developments that they reflect in these communities. There is an international network of harm reduction therapists and substance use treatment practitioners that are working to adapt this therapeutic approach to their particular social and cultural contexts.
