Harm Reduction in Behavioral Health 
Presented by Myranda Green, LLMSW

Details: June 6, 2024 (10am - 2:30pm, including a 30-minute lunch break)
*Up to 4 CE credits will be issued to those attending this virtual opportunity.

Description: This workshop will explore the vast array of situations and settings in which a harm reduction lens can be utilized in behavioral health. Harm reduction incorporates a spectrum of evidence-based and evidence-informed strategies (from safer use, to managed use, to abstinence) to meet individuals engaged in high-risk behavior “where they're at” while addressing symptoms and diagnoses.  

Join this 4-hour virtual training for an introduction to harm reduction, to learn how to implement harm reduction strategies, and for tools to navigate conversations on access to lethal means. The six principles of harm reduction will be taught (humanism, pragmatism, individualism, autonomy, incrementalism, and accountability without termination), including how they relate to the role of the clinician.

Learning Objectives: Attendees will be able to... 

  • Understand harm reduction opportunities, and the role of safe injection facilities and housing first opportunities in harm reduction
  • Understand the role of the clinician, and list ways a clinician might assist the person served in their treatment
  • Demonstrate knowledge on the 6 principles of harm reduction specific to healthcare settings
