She has written several papers on the topics of dual diagnosis and group treatment and a short series on trauma-informed care. She is co-author of the books Over the Influence: The Harm Reduction Guide for Managing Drugs and Alcohol and Practicing Harm Reduction Psychotherapy, an Alternative Approach to Addictions, 2nd Edition.

Ms. Little has taught hundreds of workshops for licensed clinicians and program staff on the topics of substance misuse, dual diagnosis, harm reduction, trauma-informed care, program development, and group treatment. She trains and provides ongoing consultation to numerous staff groups in outpatient clinics, outreach and drop-in centers, case management programs, and housing facilities for multi-diagnosed clients.

Ms. Little received her Masters Degree from New York University and her BA from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts.
