Abstract:
Research indicates that at least half of all women substance abusers were abused in childhood and this trauma negatively impacts substance abuse recovery. Professionals in the field agree that substance abuse counselors need to understand trauma, its effects, and treatment in order to work with their female clients. The purpose of this thesis was to develop a handbook to assist substance abuse counselors in private practice in assessing and treating child abuse trauma in women substance abusers. The handbook was developed through the historical research method and the action method of applied research. The handbook outline and completed manuscript were evaluated by substance abuse counselors in private practice with experience counseling trauma survivors. The evaluations indicated the handbook would be useful for substance abuse counselors. Recommendations for changes suggested by the evaluators will be made prior to publication. Implications for further research on women substance abusers and childhood trauma are presented.
