On April 1, 2022, Ellenhorn and the Menninger Clinic partnered to put on Shifting the Addiction Paradigm – a hybrid virtual/in-person conference aiding the shift toward humanistic and client-centered values in behavioral care. This year we were fortunate enough to have four presentations from experts in the harm reduction/addiction treatment field. You can view the presentations below.

Special thank you to our speakers, Ross Ellenhorn, Andrew Tatarsky, Sam Rivera, and Julie Holland, for all their hard work and wonderful presentations!

2022 New Perspectives Series: “Curiosity, radical hospitality and the careful, caring work of facilitating a space for growth” with Dr. Ross Ellenhorn

Can you think of anything more curative than to be witnessed in your unique and original existence by a careful and inquisitive other? It’s no mistake that “curiosity,” and “cure” share the same root. They should, since being curious about another human being is indeed a supreme act of caring, another word with similar roots. 

In this introductory talk, Dr. Ellenhorn address curiosity and its therapeutic power, and show how it connects to an experience of “radical hospitality” and the ability to enter into meaningful, facilitative dialogues.
