Online Harm Reduction Training_Praxis Public Training
You must work at a BSAS funded treatment agency in MA to attend any Praxis trainings and receive credit.

Harm reduction is a set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with substance use. Harm reduction utilizes a wide range of techniques (e.g. safer use, managed use, or abstinence) to meet people “where they are at.” The goal of harm reduction is to address use and the condition of use.

This training focuses on definitions of harm reduction, four pillars of harm reduction, and how to put a harm reduction approach into action. To learn more about this training, review the agenda.

At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:
- Describe the philosophy and principles of harm reduction
- Explain the benefits of harm reduction approaches both for clients and communities
- Identify high-risk behaviors and corresponding harm reduction strategies
- Discuss how harm reduction strategies are related to readiness for change
- Evaluate how well your organization currently integrates harm reduction principles and practices

*Please note, you must attend the entire 90-minute virtual training in order to receive credit. 1.5 CEs are available for social workers, addiction professionals, and nurses.

**Every individual will have to register with their own name and email and access the training using their individual link they receive by email upon registration. DO NOT share links with one another or you will not be able to receive credit.
