Gender Issues in Recovery: Working with Men in Behavioral Health: SELF-PACED ONLINE COURSE

3 Jan 2021 - 31 Dec 2025

Presenter: Megan Howard, LCSW, CSUD

This video will focus on the roles/stereo types that influence men's behaviors from an early age. We will identify the gender norms and how these become a barrier for change with men who suffer from addiction and/or trauma. We will seek to focus on how to break the gender stereotypes and interventions that are useful in assisting men in reaching out for help and being able to identify their own patterns of behaviors and break free from repeated cycles of abuse and substance abuse. This course will be an educational, interactive session to encourage understanding and give necessary feedback to all attendees.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the role/stereo types that create barriers for change with men in recovery
