Training Overview Description

Description

From the onset of the transatlantic slave trade, Black Americans were not afforded the opportunity to learn to read. Today, Black Americans are fighting national education systems which far too often ignore the cultural learning needs and considerations of their communities. Specifically, counseling education in America for substance use disorders (SUD) has been rooted in western theory and often is designed without consideration for the unique learning needs of Black Americans and other people of color (POC). This presentation focuses on best practices and curriculum components that will support the development of Black SUD counselors in educational, vocational, and internship-based programs. The goal of incorporating research on unconscious biases and culturally relevant theory is to fill the gaps in treatment for Black substance users and better address the health disparities within the community. This presentation is useful for all SUD counselors, supervisors, educators, and administrators.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to identify the historic and current educational disparities in SUD education for Black addictions professionals.

  • Participants will be able to describe culturally relevant addictions theory and intervention approaches.

  • Participants will be able to apply culturally relevant addictions theory to their professional development and educational practices.

Content Level

Beginner and Intermediate.

  • Beginning level courses introduce learners to a content area; include information about a condition, treatment method, or issue; and involve learning and comprehending content.
  • 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.
