The purpose of the listening sessions was to gather information from family members and loved ones of people with substance use challenges to better understand family members’ experiences supporting and seeking support for their loved one who is using substances; to ask what questions family members have about supporting their loved one who is using substances; to ask who or what is providing support for family members; and the unmet needs for support for family members. Version 1 of this report in February 2023, which described the process and findings from the initial round of listening session in 2022. Version 2 of this report describes the process and findings of additional follow up community outreach in 2023 to enhance the first phase of this consultation process: including a new round of listening sessions with family members and loved ones of people who use substances.  This project is in collaboration with the African American Behavioral Health Center of Excellence and National Hispanic and Latino ATTC.

Lastly, the presenter discusses stigma, the 3 different types of stigmas, and findings from the stigma index produced by Shatterproof.

Download Here A Cultural Adaptation of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) for Working with Hispanic and Latinx Communities Culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies are the means to ensure respectful and responsive services that enhance effective outcomes for racial, ethnic, and other underserved communities in behavioral health care. As such, being culturally informed when conducting evidence-based (EB) practices such as Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) can help Hispanic and Latinx clients reduce their substance use. SBIRT is an evidence-based practice that helps practitioners identify and intervene with people whose pattern of substance use puts them at risk for or are experiencing substance-related health and other psychosocial problems. The question is: How do we facilitate SBIRT without compromising the fidelity of the model while practicing culturally responsive care? This two-session webinar series reviews the current landscape of substance use and the benefits of culturally adapted evidence-based interventions that align with culturally and appropriate services standards, (CLAS). Further, the content informs on how a culturally informed framework can help meet the needs and enhance quality care among Hispanic communities at risk.

Culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies are the means to ensure respectful and responsive services that enhance effective outcomes for racial, ethnic, and other underserved communities in behavioral health care. As such, being culturally informed when conducting evidence based (EB) practices such as Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) can help Hispanic and Latinx clients reduce their substance use. SBIRT, is an evidence-based practice that helps practitioners identify and intervene with people whose pattern of substance use puts them at risk for or are experiencing substance-related health and other psychosocial problems. The question is: How do we facilitate SBIRT without compromising the fidelity of the model while practicing culturally responsive care? This two session webinar series will review current landscape of substance use and benefits of culturally adapted evidence-based interventions that align with culturally and appropriate services standards, (CLAS). Further, the content will inform on how a culturally informed framework can help meet the needs and enhance quality care among Hispanic communities at risk. Goal: Clinical and non-clinical professionals will review the dynamics of facilitating a culturally responsive SBIRT intervention for reducing substance use with Latinx communities and enhance their recovery and wellness process. Session 1 Objectives: Review Hispanic and Latinx behavioral health disparities Define social determinants of health and implications for communities Define cultural adaptations of practices and purpose Describe cultural & linguistic appropriate services (CLAS) standards Identify benefits of stigma free terminology and referred language Define evidence-based practice (EBP) and importance of fidelity   Presentation Handouts Session 2 Objectives: Define the Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) model List opportunities for cultural adaptations List dynamics of a culturally appropriate, trauma informed, inclusive environment Identify factors of a culturally responsive rapport and engagement for screening List benefits of the person-centered approach using core skills of motivational interviewing in a brief intervention interaction Identify benefits of working with client’s cultural concept of substance use List cultural considerations for a referral to treatment and language conducive terminology   Presentation Handouts About the Presenter Diana Padilla, CLC, CARC, CASAC-T Research Project Manager @New York State Psychiatric Institute, Division of Substance Use Disorders, Columbia University Medical Center Diana Padilla is a Research Project Manager, at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, Division of Substance Use Disorders, Columbia University Medical Center.
