    In order to enhance client care and increase cultural competency the presentation will use research and case examples to highlight the importance of gender specific substance abuse treatment for women. Women often become addicted within the context of close interpersonal relationships and they are more likely to relapse within that context as well. Women entering treatment often lack economic opportunity, lack support (both financial and emotional) for their treatment, are the primary care givers for their children and have significant trauma history. Women are more likely to have co-occurring mental health and were more likely to have begun using as a means to self medicate and alleviate the negative symptoms.
    The purpose of this presentation is to emphasize the importance of gender specific substance abuse treatment for women in order to improve treatment outcomes for our clients. The topics that will be covered will include the following: Substance use assessment using the DSM-5, gender specific screen tools, the path to addiction – how is it different for women?, barriers women face in accessing treatment, making treatment gender specific, and understanding our own bias.

    Supervision in the behavioral healthcare field has become increasingly complicated as agencies employ staff from a diversity of disciplines, educational and experience levels, and multi-cultural backgrounds with a multiplicity of ethical codes. These trends press the conscientious supervisor to maintain the traditional ethical boundaries of care while adjusting to situations created in a “managed care” work environment. Clinical supervision is a critical part of the counseling process. It requires special thought, careful preparation, and an approach tailored to the individual strengths and area for growth of the supervisee. This training will examine the ethical issues and responsibilities of the clinical supervisor and discuss specific skills to provide effective supervision. It will provide participants the opportunity to conduct an ethical practices risk assessment of their agency. This training presents ethical theories and concepts that require supervisory clinical experience and knowledge to successfully integrate them with clinical practice – it is not intended for non-supervisory personnel.
