Working with LGBTQ+ People in Substance Misuse Treatment
April 30, 2019 . 8:30 am - 5:00 pm$60
This workshop covers an update in vocabulary and also covers concepts of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, development of transgender/genderqueer/non-binary identities, transgender clients’ bio-psyhco-social needs, the range of social and medical options, and best practices. We create a non-judgmental learning environment where participants can ask questions and get answers. We will also discuss the ways in which the trauma of living in an anti-LGBTQ+ society can influence substance misuse.
