Despite being at increased risk for developing substance use disorders and other mental health issues, LGBTQ2S+ Native American clients are little studied in the clinical literature. This deficit in awareness and care considerations can lead to significant gaps in care for this priority population. In this presentation, the presenters will discuss ways in which practitioners can effectively and compassionately work with this population by integrating Western and Indigenous medicine and therapeutic principles.
Participants will be able to describe at least three ways in which historical trauma has impacted LGBTQ2S+ Native Americans.
Participants will be able to identify at least three ways in which they can integrate cultural competency with this population into their clinical practice.
Participants will be able to identify resources within their communities to serve LGBTQ2S+ Native Americans.
