Time Out! For Me

Time Out! For Me
Authors: N. Bartholomew, L. R.  Chatham and D. D.  Simpson

The value of specialized interventions for chemically dependent women has been well documented. The Time Out For Me! manual offers treatment professionals an up-to-date curriculum for leading women's groups that address issues such as sexuality, self-esteem, assertiveness, and reproductive health concerns. This 6-session workshop incorporates information sharing, discussion, exercises, and role play activities in a structured format. The manual also features a reference section on human sexuality, a resource directory, and handout materials for participants. Studies by the authors suggest that participation in Time Out For Me! workshops increases knowledge, self-esteem, and treatment tenure.

The workshops cover the following topics:

  • A new outlook on sexuality
  • Assertive communication skills
  • HIV/AIDS/STDs and women
  • My personal rights
  • Sexual and reproductive health
  • Communicating about sexuality
