About the Course:
Course 102559 replaces this course. Working With Specific Populations of Men in Behavioral Health Settings (TIP 56, Chapter 4): Addressing the Specific Behavioral Health Needs of Men explores some basic differences in men’s patterns of substance use/abuse based on various demographic factors. For example, early use of substances by men may be attributable to the fact that they are not adept at addressing emotional pain constructively. A man’s family background, sexual orientation, and cultural/ethnic identities may also affect his choice of substances and the possibility that he will develop a substance use disorder. The specific needs of male veterans are also addressed. The special dynamics of men entering treatment through the criminal justice system or men who may interact with the criminal justice system while in substance abuse treatment are also presented in this chapter.
