The National Hispanic and Latino ATTC is one out of four national focus centers in the ATTC Network. It focuses on supporting the workforce that serves Hispanics and Latinos in addiction treatment and recovery and broadening implementation to include culturally effective and competent practices.
To accomplish these goals, the National Hispanic and Latino ATTC Center provides webinars, Training of Trainers sessions and a yearly conference. This year’s national conference, titled Integrating Research, Education, and Services to Reduce Behavioral Health Disparities in Hispanic and Latino Populations, highlighted components of health disparities among Hispanics and Latinos. All of the presenters’ PowerPoints are readily accessible online.
Upcoming educational events include “Cultural Elements in Treating Hispanic and Latino Populations” and “US Hispanic Street Gangs.”
