Description

For social workers to deliver skilled care to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) clients, they need to be aware of issues specific to the LGBTQ community. This CEU course provides an overview of the use and abuse of substances in the LGBTQ community, presents information to help social workers understand cultural issues relevant to treating LGBTQ clients, examines ways programs can safeguard information about clients’ substance abuse histories, and advises on approaches of care relevant to the LGBTQ populations.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss what topics social workers should regularly direct attention to when working with the LGBTQ community.

2. Explain what social workers need to be aware of when communicating with American Indians and Alaska Natives.

3. Investigate the clinical issues facing bisexuals and what these issues often result from.

4. Examine the key concept in understanding issues facing gay men, lesbians, and bisexuals in substance abuse treatment.

5. Identify for which substance there is compelling evidence that HIV and hepatitis C infections are linked with its use.

6. Describe a culturally competent model of treatment.
