Dr. Andrew Tatarsky is a leading developer of Harm Reduction Psychotherapy. His integrated approach to treatment utilizes the best of the psychodynamic, harm reduction, cognitive-behavioral, and experiential traditions in addiction treatment. This approach is very useful because it empowers the psychotherapist to simultaneously treat problems with substance use and the emotional difficulties that may underlie or drive it. His training will include a didactic overview and case consultation with material provided by attendees.

Drawing on the clinical wisdom and practice of a wide range of Gestalt and integrative psychotherapists, Dr. Kellogg will introduce therapists to the art and science of chairwork, or psychotherapeutic dialogues, in an active, creative, and clinically-useful manner.

Using didactic presentations, scripted and unscripted role-plays, and live demonstrations, participants will learn how to use this technique with addictive disorders and when treating problems related to loss and grief. More information about his work can be found at:
