Working with women engaged in alcohol and other drug treatment
We’ve just published the third edition of this valuable resource, Working with women engaged in alcohol and other drug treatment, also known as ‘the yellow book’.
This resource supports the provision of best practice interventions for women accessing AOD treatment and to effect organisational change around becoming gender responsive, family inclusive and trauma informed.
It provides structural solutions and practical guides to support workers and organisations to improve work practices with women accessing AOD treatment. Improving service provision to women means acknowledging their unique experiences and perspectives, enhancing the best practice approaches AOD treatment services already have in place and/or adopting philosophical perspectives that give a greater voice to the needs of women.
