Competences

General competences

GC 1. Know, analyse, reflect and apply advanced and specific methodologies and resources in areas related to gender, drugs and addictions, as well as their theoretical models and regulatory and political frameworks to address and transform gender asymmetries in the different fields of action related to drugs and addictions.

GC 2. Develop, coordinate, plan, formulate work objectives and use appropriate professional strategies aimed at the target population, incorporating the gender perspective into the areas of universal, selective, indicated and determined prevention (including knowledge and management of harm and risk reduction) using the theoretical criteria acquired to ensure decision-making that allows to achieve the desired goals for this purpose.

GC 3. Know and use the bibliographical and documentary sources on gender and drug addiction or other addictions from national and international reference centres, acquiring reliable criteria to evaluate the relevance of research conclusions and, if necessary, to mainstream and apply the findings to improve the professional interventions performed.

Specific competences

SC 1. Understand the differences in health and access to it between men and women who are related to drugs or are addicted, based on the theory of the sex-gender system. Therefore, the aim is to understand the differential organisation of the biological, psychological and social factors that intervene in addiction in both cases.

SC 2. Rethink the theoretical models of addictions and the historical constructions of the different cultural roles attributed to women and men in their relationship with drugs and addictions. Develop criticism and self-criticism with respect to the traditional models of intervention on addictions that perpetuate gender asymmetry and make access to health difficult for female drug users or addicts.

SC 3. Integrate the gender perspective into the new models of interpretation of addiction, the design and evaluation of programmes for health promotion, supply control, universal, selective, indicated and determined prevention actions, therapeutic assistance, harm reduction, coordination, research and training in drugs and addictions, in different contexts and for different groups. This is based on parameters of respect and equality of opportunity that address the needs of men and women in their relationship with drugs and/or in their treatment of addiction in a more adapted way.

SC 4. Know the different programmes, resources, entities and good practices that are developed at a local, state, European and international level in the field of gender and addictions.

SC 5. Formulate, propose and inform on an intervention or research project from a gender perspective in the field of addictions of an empirical or theoretical nature, which has academic rigour and integrates appropriate research methods and valid working hypotheses.
