**Previously Recorded on 11/04/2021 - Not a Live Event**

Transgender individuals are at higher risk for co-occurring substance use and mental health diagnoses than their cisgender peers. Many transgender people may avoid substance use treatment as providers lack knowledge of working with this population. It is recommended that treatment centers and clinicians become aware of the unique needs of transgender clients to enhance treatment programming and create an environment which is inclusive and affirming. This presentation will review the foundational factors to provide effective clinical treatment to trans and gender non-conforming populations. This presentation will also review various aspects to transgender clinical treatment while providing recommendations as to how to make treatment centers safe and affirming environments.

Fredrick Dombrowski has worked as a clinician in the field of co-occurring disorders since 1998. Dr. Dombrowski has used evidence based practices in varying forms of treatment (CBT for gender dysphoria and chronic pain, DBT for personality disorders, MI for substance use treatment). He has experience as a supervisor and director for multiple programs including inpatient, outpatient, and forensic treatment. As an educator, Dr. Dombrowski is focused on experiential learning through a perspective of cultural humility and an equitable approach to clinical care. As a supervisor, Dr. Dombrowski remains focused on improvement of clinical care through supervision dedicated to evidence based practices.
