National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) Webinar

Counseling Adolescent and Minority Clients with Substance Use Disorders

National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) Webinar

It is has been repeatedly proven that a lack of cultural competency can and will lead to poorer outcomes in the provision of services to minority populations. This may be especially true of adolescent and transition aged (16-25) clients who may operate more singularly from the world views and perspectives of their own culture than adults who may have more insight and ability to forgive missteps by providers.  While these facts are now very well known, it is still difficult for counselors to access training that provides them a real springboard into multicultural competency. This free webinar will provide them with methods of becoming effective that are not restricted to learning “fun facts” about various cultures and calling it a day.
