"Adapting Trauma Treatment for Special Populations: Guidance and Case Studies"

Wednesday, November 9, 2005 2:00-3:30 PM EST

This teleconference will provide information and guidance about adapting trauma treatment models to meet the needs of specific populations. Two case studies from the Women, Co-Occurring Disorders and Violence Study will be presented: a formal adaptation to meet the needs of Latina women, and an informal adaptation to meet the needs of African American women. Come participate in a lively discussion about the experience of adapting trauma treatment models for special populations, from the perspective of consumers and providers.
