The purpose of this training is to provide clinicians with a culturally-specific point of reference relating to conceptualising, assessing, coordinating, and implementing treatment specifically to women of colour. Treatment considerations will take into account the identification of socioeconomic limitations, gender role expectations, and other barriers resulting in adverse treatment outcomes.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to demonstrate cultural awareness as it relates to women of colour seeking addiction treatment.
  • Participants will be able to describe three ways to promote trauma-informed care in their work.
  • Participants will be able to apply learned techniques to better initiate addiction treatment among women of colour.

Content Level

  • Intermediate level courses provide information that builds on knowledge practitioners with some experience already have. These courses focus on skill-building or adding knowledge, possibly following a brief overview of basic information, and involve using information in concrete situations and understanding the underlying structure of the material.

Who Should Attend

Addiction professionals, employee assistance professionals, social workers, mental health counsellors, professional counsellors, psychologists, and other helping professionals that are interested in learning about addiction-related matters.
