1. introduction

 Hello,
 
Welcome to the online training 'How to maintain a professional harm reduction attitude during a pandemic lockdown'.  
 
We are facing a different way of living. A virus is controlling daily life, and a lockdown is a fact. You are part of an NGO who helps people who use drugs through harm reduction. During this period, your service users and the communities need you to perform at your best. (though this training focuses on working with people who use drugs, harm reduction can be applied to all aspects of life)
 
Everybody is dealing with the lockdown in their way. You need to deal with it differently than most people, once for your personal life and a second for you as a harm reductionist during the lockdown.  Your job has just changed, and you'll need to adapt. Even during this lockdown, you will need to remain calm, professional and competent. This manual is for staff who will be doing outreach work, but also people that will communicate from home. Harm reduction is an approach and set of principles that require an attitude, even a way of living.
 
This training is about learning how to be a professional harm reductionist during a lockdown. You will see that it is not different from the harm reduction approach when there is no lockdown. The principles of harm reduction don't change, and neither should the professional attitude. But it's now more critical than ever to show the service users and communities that through harm reduction lives are being saved. This survey is for everybody that works in an NGO that supports and implements harm reduction. From the staff on the ground to the management at the top.
 
What we are going to try to do is to see the possibilities and opportunities during the lockdown. When you work through these exercises, try to think what can you learn about yourself and what can you do to make the best out of this situation. Also, try to be critical towards your colleague(s). Your feedback will help them grow.
 
This online training is free. To have your training and assignment reviewed, we ask a fee of €25,- or SAR500,- per person. You will then receive an additional theoretical document so you can go over the theory once more, an extra in-depth assignment, feedback on your assignment  and a certificate of completion. Contact us on jos.luteijn1978@gmail.com to receive a reference number if you like your training to be reviewed.
Please also provide feedback to us about your experiences and any changes you suggest.
 
All the best,
Jos

How does online training work?
The training exists in two parts: This online training and an assignment you will need to do at the end.
In this online survey, you will find all the information. The training itself is free, and you should be able to learn by reading and making the exercises. To get more out of this training there is an option to have your training and assignment reviewed.
In order to have your training and assignment reviewed and receive additional information, an extra in-depth assignment and a certificate of completion, kindly contact us.  (jos.luteijn1978@gmail.com, (€25,- or R500,- South Africa) 
There are three ways to go through the survey.
 
You're together with one or more harm reduction workers.
1.     Together you will work through the survey. Simply follow the questions.
1.1.  Every person will read individually and do the exercise.
1.2.  When you and your colleague(s) finish the exercise, you discuss with your colleague(s) what you have filled in. 
1.3.  After you've discussed the exercise, you continue to the next. At the end of the survey is an individual assignment that needs to be sent to the trainer so he or she can see if you understand the material.
 
You're working from home.
2.     You connect online with a colleague. Together you will work through the survey. Simply follow the questions.
2.1.  When you and your colleague(s) finish the exercise, you discuss with your colleague(s) what you have filled in. 
2.2.  After each exercise, you will call or skype with your colleague and discuss the answers you have. (when you read and fill in the activities, you can break off the connection to save data.) At the end of the manual is an individual assignment that needs to be sent to the trainer so he or she can see if you understand the material.

Third option:
you (and your colleague or team) follow an online session with the trainer. Contact trainer to ask for more options:
