Working with Addicted Survivors of Sexual Assault/Abuse, a Chemical Dependency Training Consortium Event
Goal of Training
This core level training will provide attendees with an understanding of working with chemical dependency clients who have experienced sexual assault/abuse in their childhood and/or adult life, including both genders. This training will assist attendees in understanding the links between chemical dependency and the trauma that is associated with sexual assault. Family structures and dynamics will be discussed. Components of this training include working with survivors, laws around sexual assault, the impact it has on children, short and long term impacts of sexual assault/abuse, and utilizing community resources, such as referring clients to advocacy centers. Participants will gain skills in developing appropriate treatment plans for survivors of sexual assault.

- Identify the link between sexual assault/abuse and chemical dependency,
- List the short term and long term impacts of sexual assault/abuse,
- Share information on the laws regarding sexual assault,
