"The curriculum provides a vision for chemical dependency treatment I have attempted to address for many years. This looks like an approach that finally meets this need." --Eli Coleman, PhD, Director of the Program in Human Sexuality University of Minnesota The ideal of successful treatment is to maintain abstinence for the rest of the addict's life; yet few treatment programs meet this goal. For many men and women in recovery, sexual behavior linked with drug or alcohol use is the primary reason for relapse. A large number of addicts have sex/drug-linked patterns of combining drugs, such as crystal meth, cocaine, alcohol, and club drugs, with sexual relations. In recovery, they may be unprepared for the dual absence of drug use and sexual relations. Additionally many addicts have past histories of sexual abuse. While great strides have been made in treating women and men suffering from addiction, their sexuality is too often marginalized. When sexuality is not directly and positively addressed in drug and alcohol treatment, it can contribute to treatment failure, relapse, and untold costs in the lives of addicts and their families. Sexual Health in Drug and Alcohol Treatment introduces a pioneering evidence-based curriculum, designed to integrate concepts of sexual health, current sex research, and recent developments in relapse prevention research. Complete with suggested group activities, guided discussions, role plays, and more, the program can reduce the risk of relapse and increase client retention for men and women with sex/drug linked addiction and alcoholism. This curriculum was created by drug and alcohol counselors, sexual health advocates, and sychological/sexological research specialists. Key Features: Helps women and men in recovery identify sexual thoughts and feelings associated with increasing or decreasing risk of relapse Is compatible with all treatment settings, approaches, and clientele Includes pschoeducational material, experiential learning, skill-building exercises, assessments, worksheets, and more Proven to improve client retention and reduce sex/drug linked shame-a common cause of relapse

Learn from the experiences of these program sites to develop better services for women with co-occurring disorders and histories of violence This book explores the efforts of the Women, Co-Occurring Disorders and Violence Study to address the significant lack of appropriate services for women trauma survivors with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Experts describe the services integration programs of nine participating sites that address the multiple needs of these women. In this guide, you will find useful strategies for integrating services that are responsive to the strengths and needs of the individual as well as the community. This vital resource examines how—over a period of five years—sites designed, implemented, and evaluated their interventions. You will learn how sites developed their strategies for integrating services at both the clinical/individual level and at the services or systems level. The book also shows how trauma-informed, gender-specific, culturally competent care fosters treatment that is sensitive to related issues such as children and parenting, interpreting culture cues, and socioeconomic difficulties. In Responding to Physical and Sexual Abuse in Women with Alcohol and Other Drug and Mental Disorders, you will learn about the details of nine different programs, including: Franklin County Women’s Research Project—a collaborative project for rural women, designed and operated by local consumer/survivor/recovering women (CSRs) The Triad Women’s Project—a semi-rural comprehensive system of care to respond to the needs of women and children The Women Embracing Life and Living (WELL) Project-interventions include trauma, parenting, systems integration and mutual help groups with Integrated Care Facilitators providing resource coordination and advocacy services PROTOTYPES, Centers for Innovation in Health, Mental Health, and Social Services—the three levels of integration the Systems Change Center implemented the Boston Health Commission—an integrated model of trauma-informed services culturally and linguistically appropriate for its service population of primarily poor Latina and African American women Palladia’s Portal Project—a comprehensive trauma-informed intervention designed to put trauma and safety first to assist women remaining in treatment Arapahoe House’s New Directions for Families—a family-oriented intervention for women and their dependent children Allies—comprehensive, integrated services for women as well as intervention for their children, ages 5-10 The District of Columbia Trauma Collaboration Study (DCTCS)—a two-phase project addressing the needs of dually diagnosed women trauma survivors Responding to Physical and Sexual Abuse in Women with Alcohol and Other Drug and Mental Disorders provides you with first-hand accounts of the process by which programs and service systems were transformed. As challenges were met and strategy was adapted to “real world” situations, the sites discussed in this text found new and improved methods for helping this unique group of women. The book offers tips, solutions, and possibilities to mental health professionals, substance abuse professionals, and domestic violence professionals, and even patients and/or clients searching for support.

Research Design for Social Work and the Human Services integrates a range of research techniques into a single epistemological framework and presents a balanced approach to the teaching of research methods in the "helping professions." Jeane W. Anastas begins with a discussion of the different philosophical perspectives within which social research occurs and continues with problem formulation, research design, and methodological issues influencing data collection, analysis, and dissemination. She presents both fixed (quantitative) and flexible (qualitative) methods of research, granting legitimacy, value, utility, and relevance to both styles of inquiry. Utilizing complete case studies to illustrate different methodological approaches, Research Design for Social Work and the Human Services integrates material on women and people of color, and draws attention to the ways racism, heterosexism, sexism, and classism affect the conceptualization and conduct of research. Anastas not only exposes these biases but actively addresses the experiences, needs, and concerns of clients of both genders and different races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, cultures, and classes.

The purpose of this handbook, originally published in 1984, was to provide a compreh- sive review of current clinical descriptions, research , and theories of psychopathology. Descriptive psychopathology is a ?eld that forms the foundation of clinical practice and research in clinical psychology, psychiatry, psychiatric social work, psychiatric nursing, and allied professions in mental health. Since the 1st edition, the editors have devised and updated a handbook to cover both general and speci?c topics in psychopathology that would be useful to researchers, practitioners, and graduate or other advanced students in the mental health and behavioral medicine professions. To implement this plan, we have very carefully chosen colleagues whom we respect for their expertise in particular ?elds. These authors include both clinicians and researchers who have outstanding national reputations, as well as more junior behavioral scientists and clinicians who, in our opinion, will achieve similar recognition in the future. The excellent chapters in this book lead us to believe that we have chosen wisely. We would like to express our appreciation to these authors for their outstanding contributions and cooperation.

This innovative textbook reconfigures generalist social work practice for the twenty-first century. Incorporating historical, ethical, and global perspectives, the volume presents new conceptualizations, definitions, and explanations for social work practice and principles in the areas of assessment, relationships, communication, best practices, intervention, and differential use of self. Case studies fully discuss and illustrate the use of these approaches with real clients and provide a lens inclusive of geography and culture to promote social justice and human well-being, whether within one's own nation or across national borders. Recognizing that targeted practice with individuals is the key to successful outcomes, this textbook equips today's practitioners with the values, skills, and knowledge necessary for social work practice in a globalized world.
