“My status as an outsider and stranger complicates an already difficult process of asking clients intimate questions about their medical and personal history. By affording clients as much agency as possible in our interactions, such as by adopting a harm-reduction approach to conversations about sexual activity and drug use, I collaborate with clients to begin the process of building up their autonomy in a carceral environment where it is regularly denied.”
