Autonomy, Choice, & Self-Determination: Harm Reduction

May 14 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Autonomy, Choice, & Self-Determination: Harm Reduction

In this interactive workshop, participants will gain insight into applying harm reduction principles when supporting folks having a variety of experiences. Together we’ll explore how to meet folks where they are and practice a person-centered, empathetic, and nonjudgmental approach to harm and risk reduction. Participants will investigate the utilization of risky or harmful behaviors as survival tools for managing pain, trauma, and emotional distress; practice engaging in conversations about the pain and trauma that lead to risky or harmful behaviors; and explore harm reduction as an embodiment of social justice.

This training will be held virtually via zoom. We recommend that folks join via laptop, desktop, or tablet as smart phones are harder to navigate for this kind of interactive training.

This training is for folks who live and/or work in Vermont. This training is free of charge to participants and sponsored by Vermont’s Peer Workforce Development Initiative.
