This book is about shifting the way we look at addiction, and the importance of involving many different perspectives. It also engages with gender and trauma as they affect our contemporary patterns of, and responses to, addiction.

This book reflects an ongoing conversation that we have fostered over the past 12 years in a unique transdisciplinary training program called Intersections of Mental Health Perspectives in Addictions Research Training (IMPART)  (http://www.addictionsresearchtraining.ca/).

This innovative book documents some of the achievements made through this remarkable project. It also invites further discussion and action on how sex and gender, and violence and trauma can be effectively integrated in mental health and addiction treatment, research and policy.
