Description

Hawai'i Harm Reduction Conference 2019: COMMUNITIES, CONNECTIONS, COMPASSION

HARM REDUCTION is a philosophy and set of strategies for working with individuals engaged in potentially harmful behaviors. The main objective is to reduce the potential dangers and health risks associated with such behaviors, even for those who are not willing or able to completely stop. Harm reduction uses a non-judgemental, holistic, and individualized approach to support incremental change to increase the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

INTERSECTIONALITY, the theme of this year's conference, refers to the shaping of one's identity by factors such as race, class, gender, sexuality, and nationality, and highlights the interwovern nature of experiences shaped by social issues.

Topics include:

  • New approaches to criminal justice
  • Marijuana and medicinal cannabis
  • The Native Hawaiian community
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Working with nontraditional allies
  • Restorative Justice
  • Homelessness
  • Mental health
  • Much, much more

We look forward to seeing you on January 11th.

CEUs are pending. Please watch for additional information.
