What: Webinar
When: July 27, 2016

This webinar will introduce participants to the history, principles, and fundamental clinical interventions of harm reduction psychotherapy (HRP). As an integrated, biopsychosocial model, HRP offers the most comprehensive means of working with clients who present with substance use disorders, mental illness, trauma, and medical issues such as HIV. Including both the science and the spirit of harm reduction, this webinar can guide clinical assessment, decision making, and collaborative treatment planning. The goal of this webinar is to increase participants’ skills and willingness to use harm reduction therapy to reduce HIV transmission when working with persons who use substances.

 

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

 

• Understand the goals of harm reduction therapy as they relate to HIV prevention

• Apply the basic principles and tools of harm reduction therapy to a substance abuse case study 

• Identify federal and community resources to support the implementation of harm reduction
