Deb Guthmann, Ed.D., NIC, is a nationally recognized lecturer, administrator, researcher, educator, and advocate with over forty years of extensive experience in service to the deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) population.

Deaf or Hard of Hearing clients (DHH) have a unique culture that often goes unrecognized by individuals and organizations alike. DHH clients also face significantly increased barriers to accessing services. This workshop will include information about various aspects of substance use dependency, Deaf Culture and how it impacts individuals who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. The workshop will introduce attendees to research-based screening tools for substance use disorders and mental health issues for DHH clients, provide information on the use of ASL interpreters, and implications of the COVID pandemic on DHH individuals. Material being developed for a new e-cigarette curriculum will be highlighted as well as online 12 step meetings and other resources that are available for DHH individuals.

This workshop is approved for 1.5 CE clock hours; no NBCC credit is available for this program.
