Substance use disorders are pervasive and chronic conditions that can impact the lives of any person regardless of ethnicity, race, culture, religious preference, sexuality, gender or any other individual or group factor. Learning how to approach each individual who asks us for help with humility and a willingness to accept those individual differences is crucial to provide effective treatment for successful outcomes. This training will help participants define cultural humility and begin to raise awareness of cultural factors that can have an impact on treatment retention and outcomes. Using the most current data and incorporating real world clinical examples, the training will demonstrate the importance of incorporating cultural humility into practice. 

At the conclusion of the training session, participants should be able to:

1.    Examine how substance use disorders (SUDs) are a chronic condition and the implication of this on collaborative treatment planning and service delivery.
2.    Define cultural humility and its central importance to patient care.
3.    Identify and recommend two (2) strategies and treatment approaches consistent with cultural humility and client-centered approaches to care.
4.    Specify at least three (3) strategies for applying cultural humility when addressing patient behaviors that conflict with provider’s personal perspectives of recovery, morality, or preferred approaches to treatment.
