Women and Addiction: A Gender-Responsive Approach
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT GUIDE
$175.00 (DVD/ Manual/ CE Test)
Historically, addiction research and treatment have been focused on men. Now there is a growing recognition of the need for gender-responsive and trauma-informed treatment services for women with substance-use disorders. This manual and DVD provide an overview of what is essential in creating woman-centered services, including a theoretical foundation and guiding principles, a discussion of what counselors need to know and do in order to be effective, and a description of important program elements. The complete package is part of Hazelden’s Clinical Innovators Series and includes a self-test for continuing education (CEs).
