Training Overview Description

Integrating culturally relevant music into substance use disorder treatment has the potential for greater provider-to-client understanding and connectivity. The purpose of this session is to provide a broad appreciation for the African American client’s cultural DNA. This session will result in the participant’s increased understanding of the African American culture and expose the participant to aspects of culturally informed comprehensive care. Participants will learn about why and how music and religion are part of the fabric of the Black community.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to explain the historical significance of music and religion in the African diaspora and the evolution of its cultural context.
  • Participants will be able to summarize the need for and benefits of integrating culturally based music and religious wellness practices into substance use disorder treatment.
  • Participants will be able to describe content creation and techniques for integrating music into substance use disorder treatment.

Content Level – All levels

  • Beginning level courses introduce learners to a content area; include information about a condition, treatment method, or issue; and involve learning and comprehending content.
  • Intermediate level courses provide information that builds on knowledge practitioners with some experience already have. These courses focus on skill-building or adding knowledge, possibly following a brief overview of basic information, and involve using information in concrete situations and understanding the underlying structure of the material.
  • Advanced level courses provide content for participants who have been working in the content area and have a clear understanding of the issues. These courses cover and address the complexities involved in the work and involve synthesizing material to create new patterns or structures or evaluating material for a specific purpose.

Who Should Attend

Addiction professionals, employee assistance professionals, social workers, mental health counselors, professional counselors, psychologists, and other helping professionals that are interested in learning about addiction-related matters.
