PCORnet Best Practice Sharing Session – LGBTQ Adaptation of CBT
May 21, 2018 @ 2:00 pm EDT - 3:00 pm EDT
The RADD study offers Resources for Services training to partnered agency staff and hopes to determine if there is an added benefit to offering Resiliency Classes (RC) to study participants receiving services at those agencies. The RC are 7 sessions of CBT taught by a non-licensed instructor to participants with low mood. These were developed by Dr. Jeanne Miranda and adapted for the LGBTQ community through input from community partners and the LGBTQI2-S UsCC (Underserved Cultural Communities) Subcommittee. This subcommittee belongs to the County of Los Angeles – Department of Mental Health (DMH) Program Support Bureau – Quality Improvement Division.
