About this course

Have you ever struggled to support a client in changing their behavior? Do you ever feel like your clients want to change, but do not follow through with their intentions? Do you ever feel like you want change for your clients more than they want to change themselves?

During this five-week course geared for providers working directly with individuals experiencing homelessness, substance use, or other instability, participants will learn and understand theories of behavior change and harm-reduction approaches to better support clients to make and sustain changes in behaviors. Guided by Motivational Interviewing and Trauma-Informed Care approaches, topics will include (but not limited to):

- Behavior Change Theory
- History and Philosophy of Harm Reduction
- Behavior Change and Substance Use
- Behavior Change and Sexual Risk
- Conducting Risk Assessments

Harm Reduction can be applied on a wide range of topics with a wide range of populations. This course is focused more specifically for individuals and agencies working with marginalized populations who are at high risk for STIs, overdose, and other negative health outcomes.
