Goal of Training
The aim of this presentation is to increase awareness and understanding of the varied and nuanced experiences of individuals with marginalized characteristics, and the implications of their access to trauma-informed integrative behavioral health care. Attendees will learn terminology and history relating to sexual and gender identities, and will deepen their awareness of historic and intersectional oppression of those with identities that migrate from societal norms. The presenter and attendees will review recent statistics and relevant current events relating to care for marginalized populations.

Attendees will be provided with practical tools and historical, relevant content to apply to their own behavioral health practice. This presentation will offer the consideration of the Ecological model, the concept of gender and sexuality as a spectrum, and will provide examples of integrative service offerings within a community-based wellness setting. Relating to professional and ethical responsibilities, the presentation will review components of ethics for counselors, and identify relevant ethical skills to embody when working with marginalized individuals. Relating to addictions treatment, the presentation will address factors including attachment, connectivity, self-regulation, and coping challenges for those who have experienced complex and intersectional trauma who are navigating substance abuse and dependency.

Behavioral Objectives

  • Define the concepts of privilege, systemic oppression, and marginalization,
