Abstract

One of the newest buzzwords in mental health and substance abuse these days is ?gender-specific? programming. What most people are really talking about are research, programs, training, and treatment for women that are based on a deeper understanding of women. In the past it has been assumed that ?one size fits all.? One approach was to design all programs for men and women and ignore differences. Another potentially more destructive approach has been to base research and treatment on findings of work with men only and not attempt to understand if they also apply to women.
