The spectrum of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning groups clearly includes a rich mix of gender roles and identities, sexual orientations, and cultural expression.
This is the third of three Addiction Messenger issues that feature information drawn from the curriculum, “A Provider’s Introduction to Substance Abuse Treatment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Individuals”. The first and second issues discussed general principles and practices of LGBTQ-effective treatment.
This issue discusses information and clinical considerations for specific LGBTQ populations. For example it discusses special clinical and social guidelines to adhere to for transgender clients such as issues pertaining to hormone therapy and the use of preferred pronouns.
