Training: Supporting People Who Use Drugs: Strategies for Service Providers (CEUs)
March 28 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Many service providers are likely interacting with people who use drugs and/or people who are at risk for overdose. Being able to effectively support and engage with people who use drugs (PWUD) is vital in our work if we want to help keep our clients and participants safe from overdose and other adverse health effects. Collectively, there is a lack of comprehensive training on how we can effectively support this population, while being nonjudgmental and non-stigmatizing in our approach. This training will offer participants an opportunity to explore reasons why people may use drugs, how we can assess risk using the “drug, set, setting” model, and how we can design our physical program spaces to support engagement among our participants and clients who use drugs.
