Harm Reduction and Beyond
Harm reduction is an important tool in providing person-centered care, reducing stigma associated with a person’s behavior or choices, and building a movement for health justice. Harm reduction intersects with various other social justice movements, including but not limited to racial justice, gender justice, reproductive justice, health justice, and decarceration. This training will explain what harm reduction is, the history of harm reduction and its core principles. Participants will be prompted to think critically about how harm reduction applies to their day-to-day lives.
This training will discuss topics that may be difficult to see or hear. Please take care of yourself as you need during this session.
