Working with Women
Gender-specific treatment clearly makes sense in the area of criminal justice and substance abuse programming. It is necessary to consider related topics such as family history, previous exposure to trauma, domestic violence, childhood experiences, and gender expectations.
Working with women in the criminal justice system who are also addicted to substances presents specific challenges.
Using the module readings and the Argosy University online library resources, research common issues and concerns associated with working with women.
In a minimum of 300 words, respond to the following:
- Explain two situations or conditions involving female clients, probationers, or inmates who you anticipate will be challenging for you to manage.
- Describe the difficulties of the situations or conditions and how you anticipate managing these concerns.
