Addressing Challenging Client Situations with Cultural Humility

Training Description:

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 live virtual 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.


At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize two ways stigma of substance use disorders impact treatment planning and service delivery.
  2. Explore two possible cultural identities that are centrally important to client care.
  3. Explain two treatment approaches consistent with cultural humility and client-centered care.
  4. Compare three different stigma mechanisms that can lead to health impairments.
  5. Apply three organizational strategies for reducing stigma and enhancing cultural humility.
