Description:
The goal of this course is to summarize critical areas of concern in assessing and treating substance abusing or dependent women. These include relationships, biological, psychological (including trauma), and socioeconomic issues. We summarize research findings presented in CSAT’s TIP 51, Substance Abuse Treatment: Addressing the Specific Needs of Women, as well as findings from other sources – and, then, we review implications of some of these findings for assessing women to identify needs and for providing services to meet those needs. Throughout, we attempt to maintain a gender competent awareness.
