About the Course:
This course explores relationships among abuse (both in childhood and adulthood), subsequent mental health problems, and substance use. The article presents statistics on the occurrence of these phenomena among Native women. It also describes a program with which the authors were involved (The Women’s Circle at the Native American Health Center), notes that culture can be a positive force in women’s lives, and suggests ways that other programs can assist clients who are facing violence and substance use problems.

This course is recommended for mental health professionals, especially psychologists, counselors, and social workers who seek knowledge about the relationship between violence, mental health issues, and substance use for women.
