HARM REDUCTION IN UTAH & BEYOND
Mark Bigler, LCSW, PhD
Harm Reduction, successfully implemented in various countries for decades, is beginning to gain traction in the U.S.. We will explore a little of the history of Harm Reduction, the possible pros and cons, discuss the research surrounding the intervention, current local and national policies, and how you can support Harm Reduction in your community.
After listening to the insights of these speakers, attendees will be able to:
(1) Explain the current harm reduction programs and concepts and the literature about these programs; and,
(2) Argue the pros and cons of these programs and the components required to make them successful.
