Addictions in the LGBTQ Population
September 15 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$70
This training will explore and discuss issues and dynamics that are important in affirming the recovery of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex persons. We will identify the competencies involved in delivering these services, discuss terminology, examine the “coming out” process, and identify knowledge and skills that are necessary for substance use disorder treatment and recovery practitioners to know in order to nurture recovery in LGBT persons.
