SMART Recovery® Podcasts


Dec 16, 2016

Listen to Joseph F. Gerstein, MD, FACP, SMART’s founding President, share ideas and examples of how to use the SMART tools to get through the Holiday Season -- enjoyably and with as little stress as possible. 

Dr. Gerstein will also spend some time discussing the fundamental importance of motivation in the recovery process and ways to enhance that, and he will introduce an interesting phenomenon observed in study of the change process. It will be a wide-ranging conversation with lots of interesting food for thought.

Dr. Gerstein was just awarded the 2016 Harvard Humanist of the Year Award “for his work over the last 25 years as the founding president of SMART Recovery, which we view among the greatest examples of community service in the history of modern humanism.” 

As a practicing internist, He helped establish SMART Recovery and became its founding president in 1994. He has facilitated over 3,000 meetings and counting, with over 800 in correctional settings.  We are honored to have him, and we are so pleased to be able to share this very special Holiday podcast with you.
