A 2-hour training with Alex Kouroghlian, MD, MPH
May 5, 2022
This training is remote only.
PRESENTATION: LGBTQIA+ populations have disproportionately high prevalence of substance use disorders compared with the general population as a consequence of pervasive minority stress occurring in stigma-related discrimination and victimization. As a result of attending this session, participants will identify best-practice strategies to address substance use disorders in the LGBTQIA+ community. Following the training, participants will be able to:
- Describe the relationship of minority stress to the disproportionate prevalence of substance use disorders among LGBTQIA+ people;
- Explain how to tailor evidence-based addictions treatments for LGBTQIA+ populations; and
- Identify specific behavioral health integration strategies to better address substance use disorders in the LGBTQIA+ community.
