Bridging the Gap: Harm Reduction and Treatment Courts (Tribal Law and Policy Institute and Center for Court Innovations)
Wednesday, October 28, 3:00pm ET
Drug court practitioners and harm reductionists have a shared interest in improving public health and community safety. These two fields are also likely to co-exist and confront similar challenges for years to come. As such, this presentation represents a new and necessary conversation— one that will help to bridge the gap between the two contrasting paradigms. The training will provide an overview of what harm reduction is— its origins, evolution, and guiding principles— and highlight the benefits and challenges of integrating harm reduction in the drug court space.
