Working with Latinos/as in Addiction Treatment
Haner Hernández, Ph.D., CADAC II, LADC I
Course Description:

The Latino population in the United States is very diverse and continues to be disproportionately impacted by addiction. Studies show that Latino men and Latina women seeking addiction treatment confront many barriers to accessing culturally and linguistically competent care. Moreover, many of those that access care may leave treatment early because their needs are not adequately addressed. This four-week course will explore key cultural characteristics of the Latino community. Also, the course will explore how culture plays a role in how Latinos/as view addiction and treatment, and will provide practical strategies to engage and retain Latino/a clients in the addiction treatment process. The course is intended for those currently working with addicted Latinos/as, or anyone that is interested in gaining more knowledge and improving their skills.

This four week course requires 8 hours of work over its duration.
