Course Overview

This course provides you insight and information into the scope and prevalence of substance use disorders (SUD) in the LGBT community. You will be introduced to the common terminology you may see or hear when working with this population in this context.

 

As you learn more about the LGBT community, you will begin to explore and understand some of the issues this community faces that may contribute to higher rates of substance use disorder. You also will examine treatment models that have been shown to be effective when working with this population, along with limitations to treatment.

 

Case vignettes and interactive exercises will help you to apply your learning and work out potentially difficult circumstances when working with LGBT substance-users. At the end of the course, you will have a firm understanding of how to provide culturally competent care for substance use disorders to this community.
