Keys to the Kingdom: Developing Culturally Relevant SUD Education for Black Addiction Professionals

5/19/2021
Time: 3:00 - 4:30pm Eastern Time (2CT/1MT/12PT)

From the onset of the transatlantic slave trade, Black Americans were not afforded the opportunity to learn to read. Today, Black Americans are fighting national education systems which far too often ignore the cultural learning needs and considerations of their communities. Specifically, counseling education in America for substance use disorders (SUD) has been rooted in western theory and often is designed without consideration for the unique learning needs of Black Americans and other people of color (POC). This presentation focuses on best practices and curriculum components that will support the development of Black SUD counselors in educational, vocational, and internship-based programs. The goal of incorporating research on unconscious biases and culturally relevant theory is to fill the gaps in treatment for Black substance users and better address the health disparities within the community. This presentation is useful for all SUD counselors, supervisors, educators, and administrators.

Advancing Awareness in LGBTQ Care, Part I: History of Specialized Treatment for LGBTQ+ Clients

6/18/2021
Time: 12pm - 2pm Eastern Time

The need for specialized treatment for LGBTQ+ individuals was first addressed in 1979 at the Rutgers Summer School on Alcoholism, which led to the founding of NALGAP: The Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Addiction Professionals and Their Allies. The co-founders of NALGAP will discuss those origins along with landmarks that followed NALGAP’s establishment, including how SAMHSA eventually published A Provider's Guide for Working with LGBT Individuals and a curriculum for training all professionals on the specific issues of LGBT clients.

7/16/2021
Time: 12pm - 1:30pm Eastern Time

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) youth are consistently marginalized and as a result are at greater risk of alcohol misuse. This workshop will identify the unique challenges LGBTQ youth face, address indicators that lead LGBTQ youth to misuse alcohol, strategies that address the specific needs of this demographic, and critical tools to affirm LGBTQ youth in your community. By working with LGBTQ youth in their early development, you have the power to support youth to engage in a community where they can embrace their identity—decreasing the statistic of alcohol misuse.

8/20/2021
Time: 12pm - 1:30pm Eastern Time

Despite being at increased risk for developing substance use disorders and other mental health issues, LGBTQ2S+ Native American clients are little studied in the clinical literature.

Part IV: Shaping Affirming Responses for Historically “Invisibilized” LGBTQIA+ Populations

9/17/2021
Time: 12pm - 1:30pm Eastern Time

Within our westernized society, issues affecting LGBTQIA+ community are garnering public recognition and attention. Despite the current relevance of the LGBTIA+ community in current media, effective culturally responsive treatment approaches and tools are lacking in the diversity of modalities and approaches. How can clinicians learn from and utilize present day attention and historical “invisibilization,” stigma, and shame to develop affirming treatment approaches for LGBTQIA+ people seeking care in their community? This presentation will discuss the influence of homophobia, transphobia, and queer aversion within historical, societal, and personal contexts with focus on the necessity to craft culturally responsive treatment methods for the LGBTQIA+ community.
