Description:
This webinar is for anyone with a personal or professional connection to the harm reduction and prevention communities. The training will focus on effective and evidenced-based prevention approaches and how they correlate to harm reduction principles. Harm reduction is practical in its understanding and acceptance that drug use and other behaviors that carry risk exist in this world. Harm reduction principles also invoke a compassionate and life preserving outlook. The topics discussed in this training will create a shared understanding about how the prevention and harm reduction fields are complementary, and how they both strengthen our collective efforts to prevent substance use, prevent return to use, and prevent overdose.
