Description
Harm Reduction With High School Students illustrates a brief intervention for working with risk-taking high school students that emphasizes helping students to recognize the potential outcomes of their risky behavior and creating motivation for change. Dr. Mary E. Larimer works in this session with a high school boy who regularly drinks to excess. After taking an assessment of his risk-taking behavior, Dr. Larimer goes over the assessment with her client and, in a neutral, nonjudgmental manner, brings him to recognize the harm he is doing to himself and, potentially, to others.
