Harm reduction for behavioral health practitioners
This event is in the past.
Harm reduction practices are becoming more popular in the United States, with many federal and state budgets allotting funding for the expansion of programs that apply these principles. While applying harm reduction principles is not a new practice, it has not been widely accepted or used in the United States in community-based settings until relatively recently. This webinar aims to educate participants about what harm reduction is, how to apply the concepts in agencies' service delivery, and the benefits for the individual, agency, and wider community when utilized. Join us with your teams or anyone who you believe may benefit from this basic primer on harm reduction in community-based settings.
