Applying a Social Justice Lens to Substance Use Research 


The objective of this talk is to discuss approaches for applying social justice to substance use research with a focus on racially/ethnically diverse populations. Specifically, the approaches that will be discussed include attending to measurement issues, constructs of particular salience to racially/ethnically diverse populations, and community engagement. Many of the examples provided will be based on my research aimed at improving substance use treatment retention, outcomes, and satisfaction among Black adults.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn approaches for applying social justice to clinical care and research
2. Identify constructs salient to People of Color
3. Describe considerations for measures used in clinical care and research and evidence supporting their validity in racially/ethnically diverse populations
