Harm Reduction TA Resources

TargetHIV

A lesson plan on harm reduction for use in training staff is one of the resources available from the CDC-funded National Harm Reduction Technical Assistance Center. The Center is "designed to strengthen the capacity and improve the performance of syringe services programs (SSPs) and other harm reduction efforts throughout the United States by supporting enhanced technical assistance to ensure the provision of high-quality, comprehensive harm reduction services."

The harm reduction lesson plan comes in the form of a Harm Reduction and Syringe Access PowerPoint slideset, which starts with a Values Clarification Activity (a group exercise), followed by sections on: 

  • Why harm reduction (including a section on data)
  • Harm reduction values and principles
  • Drug use and harm reduction (why people use drugs, drug user health and safety, Know your substances, how they interact, and make sure to use with others or let people know what you’re taking)
