Today’s Webinar: Overlapping Issues: Domestic & Sexual Violence, Mental Health, Trauma & Substance Use
Wed, December 12, 2018 @ 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)
Join Julie Owens, Certified Domestic Violence Counselor, for this free NAADAC webinar, which will discuss the multiple vulnerabilities individuals with substance use disorder can suffer from. Clients have often experienced traumas, including domestic violence or sexual assault, which can result in depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Some have pre-existing conditions, while others develop them as a result of the traumas. This session will discuss overlapping concerns and hope to address them in partnership with victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
