Presentation: Keeping Your Head When the Patient Is Still Using: Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy and the Therapist’s Countertransference

The Committee on Psychoanalysis and Addictions Treatment of PPSC, on Saturday, March 24,  will present Andrew Tatarsky, PhD, who will discuss “Keeping Your Head When the Patient Is Still Using: Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy and the Therapist’s Countertransference”:

When treating excessive substance use and other dangerous behaviors, the therapist’s countertransference can often get in the way. Dr. Tatarsky will discuss both the challenges and opportunities inherent in working with active users. Through clinical case examples, the presenter will demonstrate how an integrative harm reduction approach can help the therapist steer an effective course between either enabling or alienating the patient.
