This 2.5 hour workshop, Addressing Sexual Issues in Addictions Treatment, developed by the CTN Research Utilization Committee (RUC), focuses on the outcomes and clinical utility of National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network protocols CTN-0018 and CTN-0019, which were designed to test gender-specific interventions to reduce HIV sexual risk behavior among clients in drug treatment programs. Counselors often have a difficult time discussing issues related to sex with their clients. This workshop aims to provide information and skills that can help begin that dialogue.
The workshop, now available at the CTN Dissemination Library website, features an article from Counselor magazine and brief video from Louise Haynes, MSW, plus two longer video presentations from Pacific Northwest Node researcher Don Calsyn, PhD, and Susan Tross, PhD, the Lead Investigators of the safer sex studies in the CTN.
