Authentic Self-Care for Addiction Professionals

Wednesday, August 8, 2018 @ 3:00 - 4:00 pm ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)

Description: Does life feel out of control? Are you resentful? Many of us are drawn to addiction work due to our history, family, and personal traits, such as compassion and empathy. While these experiences and strengths can be great assets, they can also be detrimental. In this webinar, we will identify healthy and unhealthy traits, how we can care for ourselves, and what authentic self-care looks like. We have been told of the importance of self-care but what does that mean for us? We will identify our personal challenges, triggers, and needs in order to create authentic self-care plans. Caring for yourself will benefit your family, those you work with, and of course, you!

A Son's Addiction vs. A Daughter's Addiction: Gender Differences In Drug Use and Recovery

Deb Lynskey-Lake, LCSW -- Clinical Director, Hanley Center at Origins
Gender differences in addiction
Addiction is a living nightmare for both men and women. However, there are real differences in the development of substance use disorders in men and women, how they experience the consequences of their use, and their particular needs for treatment and ongoing recovery. Below, take a look at the major differences between men and women with substance use disorders and the importance of gender-specific addiction services.

If you’re looking for treatment for your daughter, niece, granddaughter or another young woman in your life, and as a result of the significant differences in the way in which substance use conditions present for women, consider services that are tailored to women’s needs and obstacles they experience. Services for women in substance abuse treatment should include women-only programming (due to trauma history and other issues), strong female leaders and providers, peer support and cultural training and programming that addresses the unique needs of women in treatment.

If you are looking for treatment for your son, nephew, grandson or another young man in your life, consider programming that addresses effective communication training, sexual identity issues and skills for managing difficult emotions. Also look for mental health services that address sexual issues, PTSD and anger management. Like with women, all-male group therapy has proven to be highly effective and structured activities with other men can provide the necessary peer support. Individual therapy with a positive male role model as well as female clinicians who model appropriate female-male relationships are also beneficial in the recovery process.
