Harm Reduction Overview
This hour-long webinar will provide health and human service providers with a comprehensive overview of Harm Reduction. This approach incorporates 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.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

✓ Define three key principles of harm reduction
✓ Identify at three attitudes they have about using a harm reduction approach;
✓ Explore the harm reduction premise that the client is the expert and is responsible for choosing the type and timing of behavior change
✓ List at least three harm reduction options for substance use behaviors;
✓ Describe ways in which they can incorporate harm reduction skills into their relationships with clients;
✓ Practice identifying relevant approaches and barriers to using harm reduction techniques with their clients.
