Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people can experience violence, discrimination and oppression chronically over the full-course of their lives. The health disparities and use of substances among members of these communities, confirm the grave toll wrought for the transgression of being who they are. This interactive training raises awareness and offers strategies to engage and retain LGBT people in care and treatment. Participants will explore their own attitudes, values and beliefs and consider the practice of cultural humility. This training meets the OASAS requirements for six renewal hours – CASAC, CPP, CPS and six initial hours – CPP, CPS.
