Keeping this in mind, and using the textbook, lecture materials, and other scholarly resources, respond to the following questions:
- Describe the barriers that women face when seeking treatment.
- Compare and contrast how these barriers differ from the barriers faced by men.
- Recommend several treatment modifications that should be made for women in treatment.
- Explain why these modifications are important and how they are different from treatment for men.
