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.
Apply APA standards to cite the sources.
- By the due date assigned, post your responses to this Discussion Area.
- Through the end of the module, respond to at least two other classmates’ posts. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between one or more lines of reasoning in the discussion.
