Harm Reduction Psychotherapy: A New Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Problems
Andrew Tatarsky, PhD
This ground-breaking volume provides readers with both an overview of harm reduction therapy and a series of ten case studies, treated by different therapists, that vividly illustrate this treatment approach with a wide variety of clients. Harm reduction is a framework for helping drug and alcohol users who cannot or will not stop completely—the majority of users—reduce the harmful consequences of use. Harm reduction relaxes the emphasis on abstinence as the only acceptable goal and criterion of success. This book shows how a harm reduction frame has dramatic implications for improving the effectiveness of psychotherapy in many ways.

Daniel L. Araoz, Ed.D., ABPP
McFarland Publishers, 2012
Psychotherapy is a scientifically proven form of treatment, and neuroscience has justified hypnosis as a convenient method to train our minds to change our brains. However, hypnosis remains widely misunderstood. This volume clears up many misconceptions surrounding the practice by exploring it as a part of psychodynamic psychotherapy. In this context, hypnosis involves the activation of the patient's fantasy to create a new inner reality of the self, so that this reality can take the place of the old one for personal enrichment of the individual. Presenting new evidence from neuroscience and the ancient wisdom of Buddhism and detailing many short case studies, this work reveals the essence of hypnosis and demonstrates the benefits of this often misunderstood mind activity.
