“Gaining Ground: Women and Harm Reduction” is an extremely popular two day workshop for health and social service providers in Toronto, designed and lead by community partners, with the support of Toronto Public Health.
We apply a social justice framework to explore the impact of systemic oppression and policies on the sexual health and overall well-being of women who use drugs. Through an exploration of colonization, incarceration, child apprehension, violence against women, and legislation around sex work, speakers share first hand insight on critical topics.
Participants will take away:
- An understanding of the key issues affecting women who use substances and how to adapt service delivery to meet their needs.
- Practical tips, tools and strategies for working from a harm reduction perspective.
- An opportunity to reflect on your practice and to connect to service providers across sectors.
The session will be opened with a traditional Aboriginal smudge ceremony, and cedar or sage may be burned. It is optional to attend this part of the workshop.
NOTES: Please let us know at registration if you require accommodation.
This is a scent free environment. We are unable to provide lunch.
Bring a USB key if you want copies of the power points
We look forward to having you join us!
