Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy II for Substance Using Patients/Clients: Theory, Rationale and Clinical Technique.

******************************************************************************************

September 20, 2010

Dear Colleague,

I invite you to join me for a day of exploring the clinical application of Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy (IHRP). Following a well attended first Introductory training on IHRP earlier this year I will be returning to Skokie on October 1, 2020 to give a second follow-up training.

Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy II for Substance Using Patients/Clients: Theory, Rationale and Clinical Technique.

The focus of this training will be therapeutic tasks and their associated skills and strategies. We will be working with a set of Worksheets with exercises for each of the Seven Therapeutic Tasks. Didactic presentation will be augmented by case illustrations, discussion, demonstrations and skill practice. Topics include Overview of IHRP, Awareness/Mindfulness Training, Therapeutic Alliance Skills and Embracing Ambivalence. Just returning from training substance use professionals in China and having recently given trainings in New York City and Appalachian Ohio, I will also share my perspective on adapting IHRP in different institutional and cultural contexts. The training is sponsored by Behavioral Services Center, Skokie, Illinois. Please see the attach├ęd flyer for a detailed description and registration information.

I hope you can join us.

I look forward to meeting.

Best,
