Live_Webinar Harm Reduction Approach Overview

Training Description:

This 2-hour webinar will provide health and human service providers with a comprehensive overview of Harm Reduction. Harm reduction is a practical set of strategies designed to prevent disease and promote health by “meeting people where they are” rather than making judgments about where they should be in terms of their personal health and lifestyle. Recognizing that not everyone is ready or able to stop risky behavior, harm reduction focuses on promoting ways to reduce the health risks associated with drug use and other high-risk behaviors. This course will assist providers in more effectively engaging their clients in a range of interventions to reduce the risk of harm.

As a result of this training, participants will be able to:

1. Define the key principles of harm reduction.
2. Identify at least three attitudes they have about using a harm reduction approach.
3. Explore the harm reduction premise that the client is the expert and is responsible for choosing the type and timing of behavior change.
4. List a range of harm reduction options for substance use behaviors.
5. Identify a range of harm reduction options for sexual behaviors.
6. Describe ways in which they can incorporate harm reduction skills into their relationships with clients. and
7. Identify barriers and approaches to using harm reduction techniques with their clients.
 

Intended Audience: Non-physician health and human services providers who work with clients/ patients at risk for HIV or STIs including prevention specialists, PrEP specialists, peer workers, case managers, care managers and coordinators, social workers, client services staff, and others; and anyone in the general public with an interest in HIV/AIDS
