UNE CECE Event: Harm Reduction 101

Biddeford Campus Portland Portland Campus Tangier Campus Both Campuses Off Campus Online

CECE events are designed to give you as much opportunity as possible to learn about, from, and with each other, while maximizing responsiveness to changing conditions caused by COVID-19. Please check back often for latest information about viewing opportunities.

This panel discussion will introduce the concept of Harm Reduction (HR) defined as the practice of reducing risk for those experiencing Substance Use Disorders. The conversation will then describe a broadened framework, risk reduction, that conceptualizes ways in which cross-disciplinary health professionals and workers can effectively and nonjudgmentally address a range of behaviors (e. g. hoarding, disorders of eating) that negatively affect individuals, families, and systems. Panelists include Robert MacKenzie, Kennebunk Chief of Police, Kinna Thakarar, DO and others.
