This all-day workshop will introduce participants to the principles and practices of harm reduction, explore the wide applicability of the approach and discover its benefits for individuals and their communities. Harm reduction is set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing the negative consequences associated with risky behaviors, such as drug and alcohol use and unsafe sex. Harm reduction interventions are non-judgmental and non-coercive and are grounded in the needs and goals of an individual.
