      Gender Responsive Substance Use Disorder Treatment: A Focus on Evidence Based Practices

      Course Description: This program is designed to introduce substance use disorder and/or mental health clinicians to the field of gender responsive substance use disorder treatment (for women). 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 (interventions, techniques, ancillary services, etc.) to address them are important for improving the lives of individuals and their families. Participants will be exposed to Seeking Safety, Helping Women Recover, and A Woman’s Addiction Workbook as tools for serving the needs of women in outpatient substance use treatment settings. Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of their personal process in working with women, the need for gender responsive treatment, and specific tools for providing care to women that suffer from addictive disorders.   Learning objectives: Describe the evolution of gender responsive treatment. Identify biological, social, and psychological factors that are unique to women and their experience of addiction and recovery. Describe the influence of these factors on addiction treatment for women. Identify and discuss existing evidence based and promising practices. Discuss the application of presented EBP’s for participants’ clinical practice. Identify ongoing questions and challenges for the field.          Biography:    Andrea Winkler, MSW, LCSW, LCAS has emerged as an engaging and informative practice-based trainer.
