Course Description: The AATBS Certification for Treatment Specialist for Diverse Populations is a self-paced home-study course that provides 26 hours of instruction. This certification program explores the cultural complexities of assessment, diagnosis, and therapy within the ADDRESSING framework, which enables therapists and counselors to better recognize and understand cultural influences as a multidimensional combination of Age, Developmental and acquired Disabilities, Religion, Ethnicity, Socioeconomic status, Sexual orientation, Indigenous heritage, National origin, and Gender.

This program also details the interaction between family involvement in behavioral health systems of care and cultural and linguist competence, and the impact of ethnicity and culture on alcohol-related issues. In addition, this program helps practitioners who work in a wide range of settings to understand the critical role of family acceptance and rejection in contributing to the health and well-being of adolescents who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender. A systematic review of the peer-reviewed journal literature on sexual orientation change efforts is presented. Finally, this program explores the key issues faced by people in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities as they deal with domestic violence in their lives.
