Description

The term harm reduction refers to a broad set of compassionate and pragmatic approaches that aim to reduce substance-related harm and improve quality of life, without necessarily having to stop or reduce use of substances. Harm reduction treatment (HaRT) is an empirically-supported substance use treatment approach in which 3 components are delivered compassionately and pragmatically: Client-led tracking of preferred metrics, Harm-reduction goal-setting, and Safer-use strategies. In this training, we will discuss the grounding of HaRT in the larger, grassroots harm-reduction movement practice, its rationale and its key components.

Susan E Collins, PhD

Susan E. Collins, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and co-founder of HaRT3S, which provides harm reduction treatment trainings, consultations, and technical solutions. Dr. Collins is also a Professor at Washington State University and the University of Washington, the latter where she codirects the Harm Reduction Research and Treatment (HaRRT) Center with Dr. Seema Clifasefi. She has been involved in substance use research, assessment and treatment for over 25 years and has disseminated this work in over 7 dozen book chapters, abstracts and peer-reviewed articles, including a recently published book from Hogrefe’s Advancing Psychotherapy series called “Harm Reduction Treatment for Substance Use.”

She is a proud member of Division 50, where she has previously served as Program Chair and Membership Committee Chair. Using a user-centered design and community-based participatory research approaches, Dr. Collins works with multidisciplinary research and clinical teams, community-based agencies, and people who use substances to co-develop, evaluate and implement interventions that aim to reduce substance-related harm and improve quality of life for people who use substances and their communities. Her goal is to work to find ways to expand the breadth and reach of substance-use treatment so people don’t have to stop using to start recovery. Dr. Collins lives in rural Tyler, WA, with her husband and Native health researcher, Dr. Lonnie Nelson and 7-year old daughter, Emmi. She enjoys knitting, skiing, foraging, and kitchen witchery. Her favorite part of the week is volunteering for the Burritos for the People program sponsored by Spokane Community Against Racism in downtown Spokane, WA. She notes, “I am a mother, a wife, a sister and a daughter embedded within families affected by the intergenerational experience of trauma, addictive behaviors and substance use disorder. I attended my first 12-step meeting when I was 16, and my families’ and my own lived experiences drive my desire to reduce the stigma of addictive behaviors and meet people where they are at in all aspects of my work.”
