This book examines common issues educators face when teaching social justice and diversity-related courses, offers best practices for addressing them and helps educators tackle common and challenging dilemmas that arise in today’s classroom—such as diversity, privilege, and intersectionality.
Contributors discuss the many roles instructors play inside and outside of college and university classrooms, for example, in handling personal threats, responsibly incorporating current events into classroom discussion, navigating their own stigmatized or privileged identities, dealing with bias in teaching evaluations, and engaging in self-care.

In this book, school counselors and psychologists, administrators, teachers, and other community stakeholders will find steps they can take to translate and implement the ever-growing body of scientific theory and research on equitable education of gender minority and sexual minority children, youth, and families.
Chronic Pain and Opioid Management: Strategies for Integrated Treatment
By: Jennifer L. Murphy and Samantha Rafie
Associated Courses: Management of Chronic Pain: A Core Curriculum for Primary Care Providers and Basics of Chronic Pain Management
E-Collection: Full, Clinical
This book presents an integrated approach for concurrently treating chronic pain and opioid use. Many patients who suffer from chronic pain are also managing opioid medications. Because this population often requires a higher level of care, it is critical for providers to address pain and opioid management together.
The behavioral treatment strategies in this book can help providers assist patients who are struggling with chronic pain and have relied on opioids at one point including individuals that are considering de-prescribing, are in the process of opioid tapering, have recently discontinued from opioids, or are currently using opioids effectively for pain.
