Women and girls are now becoming addicted at greater rates than ever before, and until very recently women in recovery were dependent on treatment models based solely on work with men. Harvard addiction and trauma expert Lisa M. Najavits offers this step-by-step program to help women overcome the often-overlooked problems associated with their drug and alcohol addictions, such as body image, trauma and violence, relationships, stress, and thrill-seeking. She explores how women differ from men in their addiction and recovery, and adapts this information to help you embark on your journey to healing. A chapter on co-occurring emotional problems allows you to evaluate whether you have any of the key disorders common among women with addiction, such as depression, posttraumatic stress, eating disorders, or phobias. With this strengths-building workbook, begin to come to terms with your personal addiction story. Healing exercises in four areasófeelings, beliefs, action, and relationshipsóhelp women build self-respect. Exercises include ìListen to That Small Quiet Voice, Extreme Self-Care, Self-Soothing, Become Friends with Women, Rethink, Take Charge, Share Responsibility, and Mourn. In addition to these exercises and techniques, the book offers valuable resources of recovery support information.

Praise for Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children "A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home run with this series, which has all of these characteristics and more." —Edward J. Mullen, Willma & Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University "Rubin and Springer have assembled the wisdom of leading practitioners of evidence-based practice interventions, enhancing the likelihood that these practices will be adopted by helping professionals. Written in the language of practitioners, this book represents an exemplar for dissemination of evidence-based practice information." —Joanne Yaffe, Associate Professor, University of Utah College of Social Work Evidence-based interventions for treating traumatized adults and children Part of the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series, Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children provides busy mental health practitioners with detailed, step-by-step guidance for implementing clinical interventions that are supported by the latest scientific evidence.
