Members of the LGBTQ+ community present to treatment with a great deal of challenges and strengths which have informed their experience. Avery Cook offers best practice treatment information vital to ethical clinical practice when assisting LGBTQ+ clients with substance use concerns. Ethical practice demands that clinicians are familiar with LGBTQ+ issues, strengths, and barriers in recovery. Participants of this workshop will gain a basic understanding of the LGBTQ+ population as well as issues specific to the LGBTQ+ experience of addiction and recovery. Working toward the development of cultural competency as a goal, this workshop will be interactive, setting the expectation that participants engage in thought provoking dialogue in consideration of ethical clinical practice.
