Description of the event
Working to Reduce HIV Risk Among People Who Actively Use Substances
This webinar will introduce participants to the principles and fundamental clinical interventions of harm reduction psychotherapy (HRP). As an integrated, biopsychosocial model, HRP offers the most comprehensive means of working with clients who present with substance use disorders, mental illness, trauma, and medical issues such as HIV. Including both the science and the spirit of harm reduction, this webinar can guide clinical assessment, decision making, and collaborative treatment planning. The goal of this webinar is to increase participants’ skills and willingness to use harm reduction therapy to reduce HIV transmission when working with persons who use substances.
Date: Wednesday, July 27, 2016
