Overview of Harm Reduction

Harm Reduction aims to identify the multiple harms related to engagement in risky behaviors such as sex work and drug use, while ultimately working toward increasing overall health and well-being. This course provides a foundation in the philosophy, principles, and practice of harm reduction as it exists in the context of the United States. Participants will learn tools to more effectively understand the different types and levels of harm, including overdose, HIV and Hepatitis C risks, and develop practical skills and interventions that can be used in their work with substance users and other participants. This course is a foundation course for those in all disciplines interested in harm reduction.
