About this Training: An Introduction to Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation in Addiction Treatment
LGBTQ individuals are a hidden minority in addiction treatment settings. They have issues related to shame and trauma that when left unaddressed result in unsuccessful outcomes. This session will increase participant’s knowledge of the issues of sexual minorities and increase their skills for recognizing and working with this population.
