Target Audience

Social workers, psychologists, licensed professional counselors, educators, school personnel, mental health professionals, clinicians, health and human service practitioners, and other health care professionals.

Description

Research in substance use disorder treatment indicates that women are best served when treatment is tailored to fit their unique needs. Increased understanding of those needs, and evidence-based means to address them, are important for improving client outcomes. This program is designed to introduce mental health and/or substance use treatment providers to the field of gender responsive substance use disorder treatment and to support its application. Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of their personal process in working with women, the need for gender responsive treatment, and tools for providing care to women that suffer from addictive disorders.
