Summary:
"In this training video, G. Alan Marlatt utilizes his Harm Reduction Therapy approach in an actual counseling session with a client struggling with addiction. Harm Reduction Therapy is an innovative approach that focuses on reducing the harmful consequences of drug use. The therapist accepts the client on his or her own terms and tries to reduce barriers to treatment. Here, Marlatt works with an African-American client who is addicted to heroin and considering entry into a methadone program. You will understand the key aspects of the Harm Reduction Therapy model and its relevance in addictions counseling today; gain insight into Marlatt's therapy style, and how he promotes change by helping clients reduce the harmful aspects of their drug use; and learn how to apply the Harm Reduction Therapy model to help your clients successfully tackle their addictions. Jon Carlson and Judy Lewis introduce Dr. Marlatt, and facilitate an in-depth discussion of the further impact and uses of the model. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." Supplied by publisher.
