Sexuality and the Chemically Dependent Woman. A Group Facilitator's Guide.
Covington, Stephanie S.
This manual contains the first 2-hour session of a six-session sexuality guide designed for clinicians and facilitators working with chemically dependent women. The content of the manual is appropriate for inpatient programs, outpatient programs, and after-care groups. The manual begins with an introduction to women's sexuality in the 1980s and an explanation of how alcoholism affects the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of the chemically dependent woman. This introduction can serve as background information for the facilitator and as a reference source for the facilitator's own session introduction. A set of guidelines lists skills needed to facilitate women's groups and to facilitate a sexuality session. A session overview lists participant goals, session length, topic sequence and recommended times, trainer materials provided, and materials needed for the session. The detailed session outline consists of two parts: the Content Outline column which is intended as a guide to the actual sequenced topics and activities for the session and the Facilitator Activity column which provides a step-by-step guide to the session activities listed in the Content Outline column, helpful facilitating hints, and references to appropriate resources. A list of trainer materials is included. (NB)
