Counseling Diverse Populations
National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) Webinar
This free webinar will present the five current generations in the United States to participants. In addition, it will analyze the other aspects of culture from the generational perspective. Each generation, for instance, views race, sexual identity, spirituality, family, and substance use differently. A prime example within the realm of substance use is generational differences in view on marijuana. Each of the five generations will be defined, general characteristics will be explored, and the applicability to the addiction professional will be explained.
