2014-2015 Webinar Series

Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Substance Abuse

A Webinar Series for Substance Abuse Counselors and Other Allied Behavioral Health Professionals Working with Women


This webinar series will build on Real Tools: Responding to Multi-Abuse Trauma and will offer a practical toolkit for providing trauma-informed services responsive to the needs of women survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault affected by substance abuse. This series is rooted in the experiences of women in recovery who are also survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Many of the women we interviewed for Real Tools shared how they were often prevented from seeking treatment, pulled out of treatment against medical advice, and denied access to aftercare or peer support. Women also reported being coerced into using by partners, which led to relapse and increased safety risks.

This series will provide a forum for us to discuss substance abuse in the context of domestic violence, sexual assault, and various forms of oppression. Webinar attendees will explore how to respond to the needs of people they see in their services who are experiencing barriers to treatment and recovery, including substance abuse coercion. We will also include tips on support and treatment strategies in rural areas.

All live webinars will be closed captioned.
