Recognizing Racial Stigma and Opportunities for Change

September 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Stigma around opioid and other substance use create barriers for people to seek prevention and recovery supports. Add layers of race and ethnicity, and you have racial stigma, referring to how people of diverse backgrounds are perceived and unfairly treated.

This interactive four-hour workshop will review mitigating factors that influence differential treatment on stigmatized communities. Content will unpack racial perspectives and discuss factors that impact cross-cultural communications and interactions. Providers will review strategies to identify and reduce unconscious bias in care. Further, content will inform on cultural humility for practice to help mitigate stigma and increase person-centered culturally appropriate care. The benefit of integrating cultural responsiveness will help to achieve and retain highest levels of prevention and recovery supports for persons of color and other marginalized communities.
