Training Overview Description

The need for specialized treatment for LGBTQ+ individuals was first addressed in 1979 at the Rutgers Summer School on Alcoholism, which led to the founding of NALGAP: The Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Addiction Professionals and Their Allies. The co-founders of NALGAP will discuss those origins along with landmarks that followed NALGAP’s establishment, including how SAMHSA eventually published A Provider's Guide for Working with LGBT Individuals and a curriculum for training all professionals on the specific issues of LGBT clients.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will describe why there is a need to address the special needs of LGBTQ+ individuals.

  • Participants will name three seminal events in the development of resources for LGBTQ+ individuals.

  • Participants will be able to summarize current resources for working with LGBTQ+ individuals.
