Start Date: July 22, 2015
End Date: July 22, 2015
Free webinar produced in partnership with NAADAC, National SBIRT ATTC, NORC, and SAMHSA
Date: Wednesday, July 22, 2015, 3-4:30pm ET
The 2011 Institute of Medicine report titled “The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People” argues persuasively that there is a need for more attention to these subpopulations from clinical, research and policy perspectives. In support of this broad goal, this webinar examines the ways that drugs are experienced as local phenomena in the LGBTQ community, reviews the methods for working with LGBTQ populations within a minority-stress model, and discusses implications of these perspectives on the implementation of SBIRT. Together these models and approaches will be presented within a general health disparities framework.
- Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Appreciate the social geography of substance use for LGBTQ populations;
- Understand the ways that substance use relates to broader health disparities; and
- Consider the ways that local contextual knowledge can improve SBIRT implementation.
