Please join the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center at UCSF and the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco & Cancer Control for this live webinar, “Blame and shame are killing our clients: How behavioral health stigma biases providers and undermines smoking cessation” on Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.

We are honored to have Jason M. Satterfield, PhD, Academy Endowed Chair for Innovation in Teaching and Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of California San Francisco, presenting on this important and timely topic.

You will learn to:

  • Define and describe stigma as it relates to behavioral health disorders, smoking, and substance use.
  • Describe the social and psychological processes that create stigma and cause it to be internalized.
  • Summarize how stigma affects both client and provider behavior and contributed to health and health care disparities.
  • Compare and contrast two interventions intended to reduce stigma, expand access to treatment, and improve outcomes for smoking and other behavioral health disorders.
