You are invited to join us Monday, Oct. 19, for a webinar on the successes and challenges of a trauma-informed, gender-responsive sober living home program for women with histories of substance abuse and domestic and/or sexual violence.
Hosted by the Interpersonal Violence Research Laboratory — part of the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools — and the National Advocacy & Training Network, this online presentation will provide an overview of the history, mission and operating procedures of the Support, Education, Empowerment and Directions (SEEDs) program.
Discussion topics will include costs associated with running SEEDs, program implementation barriers, lessons learned and next steps for continued sustainability. Speakers will also share program success stories of promoting recovery among women with histories of addiction and victimization.
Featured speakers include:
Katie M. Edwards, Ph.D., associate professor, University of Nebraska–Lincoln, CYFS
Laura Siller, Ph.D., postdoctoral scholar, CYFS
MonaLou Callery, founder and executive director, National Advocacy & Training Network
This virtual presentation is recommended for practitioners, advocates, students and policymakers wishing to gain insight into the development and impact of a trauma-informed, gender-responsive sober living home for women with co-occurring addiction and domestic and/or sexual violence.
