LGBTQ+ & Diversity

This is a recording of RIPRC’s LGBTQ+ & Diversity training, presented by Dr. Vilna Tejeda and Dr. Aswood Bousseau, on January 26, 2024. This training introduced participants to why living and working in a multicultural society is essential to expand our awareness and skills. In order to provide person-centered and strengths-based services to our clients and communities we must create a multifaceted approach to service delivery. This interactive training provides an overview of LGBTQIA2S+ terminology. Participants will be encouraged to explore how their values, beliefs, and culture may impact their rapport with others. Substance use prevention, intervention, and recovery approaches will be explored. Finally, participants will learn about interventions and referrals they can incorporate into their practice.
