Training: Treating Substance Abuse and Other Risky and Addictive Behaviors An Integrative Harm Reduction Approach

The addictive behavior field is in the midst of a scientific revolution regarding the understanding and treatment of these issues. Evidence supports the complex psycho-bio-social view that these behaviors reflect an interplay of biology, personal and interpersonal dynamics within social contexts that is unique to each individual.

This workshop will introduce Dr. Andrew Tatarsky’s Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy (IHRP) as described in his book, Harm Reduction Psychotherapy: A New Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Problems, and will demonstrate how this treatment for substance abuse can be expanded to effectively treat other risky and addictive behaviors.
