During this symposium, members of our team will describe the characteristics of existing programs, as well as the challenges often experienced by practitioners, with a focus on clinical needs and issues related to working with stigmatized communities. Presenters will also explain the links between these results and the training developed by our network, emphasizing the advantages of using an intercultural approach.
