Parshas Naso: The Nazir and the Harm Reduction Approach



People come to therapy for various reasons and through different avenues, but a common thread is that they wish to improve their overall functioning or wellbeing or change specific patterns in their lives. Patients will identify problematic or risky behaviors, interpersonal tendencies that sour their relationships, or upsetting, uncomfortable thoughts or feelings that plague them. While the first few therapy sessions tend to focus on these goals and how therapy can help, we also spend time talking about motivation and commitment to doing the work that will help make those changes.
