Webinar--Women, Trauma, and Substance Use: Guidelines for Informed Practices, Evidence Exchange Network's Health Canada Drug Treatment Funding Program Webinar Series

February 21, 2013

2:00-3:00 p.m. EST

The Ontario DTFP Trauma and Substance Use project team is developing guidelines to support organizations that provide substance use treatment services for women. The prevalence of trauma among substance‐ involved women is high. System‐wide use of trauma‐informed practices will help service providers to understand the interconnections of trauma and substance use, and to engage and provide improved care for substance‐involved women.

The focus of the webinar is:

  • An overview of the project
  • What are trauma‐informed practices?
  • How have guidelines been developed?
  • Next steps

Presenters: Nancy Bradley, Project Lead and Director of the Jean Tweed Centre; and Janine Gates, Project Lead Consultant
