Training Title:
Retired ~ Women and Addiction: Physiological Consequences

Clock Hours: 1.5

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Identify the main contributor to women’s more rapid rate of intoxication • Identify at least four areas of physical health that are negatively affected in women as the result of chronic alcohol consumption • Identify at least two ways that consumption of other substances, such as tobacco, cocaine, heroin and other illicit drugs, affects women’s physical health

The purpose of this course is to summarize some of the information available on the different physiological responses to substances that occur in women and men. In so doing, it is hoped that providers will see that the screening for, evaluation of and education about the physiological consequences of substance use needs to be different according to the gender being educated, that is, it needs to be gender-informed. For the most part, women are more vulnerable to substances. They become addicted more quickly using lower amounts and they experience more negative physiological consequences, - and again more quickly than men. It is hoped that greater knowledge will result in greater sensitivity to the potential needs of clients, in this case, especially your women clients Keywords: Gender, gender competence, gender competency, sex, discrimination, stereotyping, women, men, oppression, feminist, women’s studies, women’s issues, feminism, inequality, power relations, sexual, group processes, group dynamics, substance abuse, addictions, alcoholism, smoking, consumption patterns, alcohol, drug, tobacco, adolescents, cultural, poverty cocaine, heroin, marijuana, Skypek
