Women, Addiction, and Trauma


Stephanie Covington

Dr. Stephanie S. Covington helps you apply her research on women, addiction, and trauma.

While research and clinical experience indicate a high incidence of trauma and co-occurring disorders in the lives of women and girls, clinicians often struggle with the realities of providing effective, integrated treatment. This web conference uses the construct of gender to delineate the principles and process of developing trauma-informed services.

Specific gender-responsive treatment strategies, designed for use in a variety of settings, are also discussed. Cognitive-behavioral techniques, expressive arts, and the principles of relational therapy are integrated in this strength-based approach, which is the foundation for all of Dr. Covington’s evidence-based curricula.
