1.5 CEHs
Time: 9:00 am - 10:30 am (PST)
Location: Online
Presenter: Gabriela Zapata-Alma, LCSW, CADC

This webinar is co-sponsored by the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma and Mental Health.

Women with substance use concerns often experience unique barriers to treatment and specialized needs that go unmet within traditional treatment settings, including: experiences of trauma and intimate partner violence, co-occurring health conditions, increased economic instability, family and parenting needs, medication assisted treatment during pregnancy, and gender-specific risk factors. This trans-inclusive webinar defines what it means for services to be comprehensive, trauma-informed, and gender responsive for women; identifies issues to consider when working with women, including women who are pregnant or parenting; and discusses how to apply gender-responsive care in the delivery of behavioral health treatment and recovery services in order to improve outcomes for women and their families.
