Understanding substance use related stigma: Strategies for better practice and social change
September 24 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Substance use disorders are the most widely stigmatized public health issue of our time. In recognition of National Recovery month, we see the need to continue learning, supporting, and addressing the ways in which we respond to individuals impacted by substance use disorders. During this 90 minute virtual training, participants will gain knowledge on the cycle of stigma, impacts of substance use related stigma, and the many ways in which substance use stigma is present in our daily lives. Participants will learn to identify personal bias and strategies to reduce substance use related stigma in personal, professional, and community settings.
