Seeking Safety: The Benefits of Gender-specific versus Co-Educational Therapy (Rapid Review)

This publication has been archived on the CCSA website and was current when it was published. It is available for reference or research purposes.

Examines the benefits of gender-specific versus co-educational Seeking Safety programs, a therapeutic approach for addressing co-occurring substance use disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. This rapid review indicates that while Seeking Safety offered to women alone shows promise in reducing alcohol use, there is insufficient research to determine if it is more or less effective than offering it to women and men together.
