Course Description:

This course is based upon material published by SAMHSA and is part of their latest Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP). 

 

The patterns of substance abuse and the treatment needs of adult men (ages 18 and older) are diverse, as are their conceptions of masculinity. Men in need of treatment come from all walks of life; this chapter outlines some of the patterns of substance use and abuse for specific populations of men, noting areas in which men differ from women. Clinical examples and tips are offered to guide behavioral health clinicians in treating men from these diverse populations.  The course material reviews treatment issues for men with co-occurring disorders, physical health problems, employment issues and systems related needs.  It also includes a review of treatment issues for men from different age groups, cultural backgrounds as well as men who are gay or bisexual.

 

This course on the specific behavioral health issues in men was initially written for use in substance abuse treatment but contains information that is applicable to other clinical populations of men.  It is designed for substance abuse counselors, social workers, psychologists, nurses, and professional counselors who do clinical work.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of the specific behavioral health issues in men.  It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.  

 

The course is based on a SAMHSA TIP and presents the collaborative efforts of some of the leaders in the field in both areas of research and treatment.  It has been reviewed by both a panel of subject matter experts and field reviewers and as such presents state of the art information for best practices.
