ADS-3140: Addiction & Marginalized Populations

This course identifies special problems, issues, and concerns for individuals challenged by addiction within specific population groups. The course offers an overview of the historical issues involved in the intercultural socialization process. This course focuses on the social-psychological dynamics of diverse and marginalized population groups that are challenged by addiction (such as individuals that are disabled, individuals diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, women, the LGBT community, criminal offenders and adolescents). Ethnic and cultural differences will be emphasized to provide students the skills needed to communicate effectively with diverse populations. This course is one of several core courses developed (special attention paid to TAP 21 criteria) to provide the practical knowledge required for successfully navigating credentialing (Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor) examinations. This course is designed to address the needs of students with no prior addiction treatment training as well as provide appropriately challenging coursework that will offer upper division scholarship for an advanced education in addiction studies.
