The Women's Addiction Services Leadership Institute (WASLI) is now accepting applications for its leadership program. Supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), WASLI aims to strengthen the capacity to serve women with substance use and co-occurring disorders.
From the announcement:
There is an urgent need to accelerate leadership in women's services to address current challenges such as a changing and aging workforce, changing finance streams, increased management requirements, new service settings and collaborations and integrated service models. To respond to this need SAMHSA/CSAT has created the Women's Addiction Services Leadership Institute. WASLI has roots in the Partners for Recovery-Addiction Technology Transfer Center Leadership Institute; it has been customized to specifically meet the needs of professionals working in women's services.
WASLI strengthens the capacity of providers to meet the treatment and recovery needs of women with substance use and co-occuring disorders by:
- Developing and improving leadership skills of participants
- Creating a network of the next generation of leaders in women's services
- Establishing a model of women's leadership training
Applications are due February 5, 2013.
