Presenters: Cheryl Sharp, MSW, ALWF, Senior Advisor for Trauma-informed Services at the National Council for Behavioral Health, and Dan Griffin, MA, of Griffin Recovery Enterprises, Inc.

When it comes to healing trauma, gender matters. Traumatic experiences do not discriminate based on gender, race, ethnicity, or socioeconomics. Trauma impacts the brain similarly, no matter the person.  What is different is how a person approaches and responds to services. A trauma-informed approach recognizes the importance of being gender responsive and provides an array of services that supports gender and cultural differences.

Join Cheryl Sharp, MSW, ALWF, Senior Advisor for Trauma-informed Services at the National Council for Behavioral Health, and Dan Griffin, MA, of Griffin Recovery Enterprises, Inc. to explore the importance of understanding gender’s role in trauma healing and recovery whether in addictions, mental health, or primary care. Cheryl Sharp’s work in trauma-informed care implementation has helped hundreds of organizations nationwide transform their programs. Dan Griffin is the author of A Man's Way through Relationships, the first trauma-informed book focused solely on helping men navigate the challenges of creating healthy and intimate relationships. He is also author of A Man’s Way Through the Twelve Steps (Hazelden), the first trauma-informed book taking a holistic look at men’s experience of recovery from addictions.
