The New England ATTC in partnership with Gateway Healthcare is hosting the SAMHSA’s National Outcome Measures Service Tool: Collecting Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Race/Ethnicity Demographic Information in a Culturally Humble and Sensitive Approach virtual training on 1/25/23 from 9:00-10:30 with subject matter expert David Zelaya. This training aims to provide an introductory overview regarding the ever growing and evolving language regarding sexual orientation, gender identity, and race/ethnicity. Specifically, the training will help to contextualize the demographic questions being utilized in SAMHSA's NOMS tool. Further, participants will be introduced to the concepts of reflexivity, cultural humility, and cultural competency in efforts to collect the data in a sensitive and respectful way. The training will include experiential activities, dedicated space for reflection, in addition to a question and answer portion with the trainer. In line with the mission of the New England ATTC, this training will help to increase the cultural competency (i.e., awareness, knowledge, and skills) of the behavioral health workforce providing substance use and addiction services.
