Welcome to the Online Course
This online course covers the core concepts of women, gender and addictions, with a focus on the intersections of mental health, violence and trauma
Trainees enrolled in the program are required to submit comments within each module of the online course as they engage with the material. Remember to scroll down and read the comments of others as well!
The course is intended to provide basic background information so that trainees have a common base for discussion of topics within disciplines outside their own. The modules also provide reading lists and links to useful resources to prepare trainees to get the most out of IMPART seminars and other activities.
