The New England ATTC is providing this training for the state of Connecticut Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services employees. Males are born into a society that begins treating them differently than females from birth. This can include a permissible harsh environment and rules that severely curtail emotional expression. This is especially true for men involved in the criminal justice system. Most traditional treatment models were aimed at “breaking men down”, and thus can fail and often re-traumatize men instead of treating them. Male socialization and trauma will be discussed in this training for working with men involved in the criminal justice system who seek behavioral health treatment. [This is a closed event]
