Description

Harm Reduction Now: A Toolbox of Strategies for Addressing Sexual Behavior and Drug Use/Abuse

Credit Hours: 8 Alcohol & Drug, HIV/AIDS | Maximum Participants: 30

Special Note: This training is not intended to promote drug and alcohol use and/or sexual behaviors that might place a person at risk for HIV, other diseases, or generally put them in harm’s way. Rather, the information presented here is intended to provide additional tools for a provider’s “toolbox “ to help them to better address the structural, biomedical, and behavioral change aspects of drug and alcohol abuse and the high-risk sexual behaviors of clients. This course acknowledges that different communities may find some tools more or less useful than others as they work with diverse clients around these challenging issues.

The writers of this curriculum also want to remind and encourage all providers to be clear about their roles and their professional ethics when working with clients. Providers should also work with their supervisors and organizational structures to understand the policies and the context of the agency and the goals of their programs.

Please further note the views expressed in this training do not necessarily reflect those of the Texas Department of State Health Services or their funders.
