Editorial Reviews

Review

"I have been using this book for a year in a chemical dependency intensive outpatient program, with great success and enthusiasm from the clients. Now our agency is using this format in all of our groups, including daytime, evening, and women's programs. It's a wonderful book, particularly because all the handouts I need are included and it's all completed in-group with no homework. I am very grateful to Dr. Velazquez and her coauthors for this user-friendly and effective program."--Elizabeth Ramos, CSAC, Cumberland County Mental Health Center, Fayetteville, North Carolina

"[Title] is an excellent resource for counselors. The book describes an integrated multi-session group program designed to enhance motivation and help people enact change. A particular strength of the program is that each session can stand alone, allowing treatment to be customized for different groups or even implemented with individuals. Abundant reproducible materials are also a useful feature."--Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Nova Southeastern University

"Clinicians working with substance abusers will use the materials in this book on a daily basis. The exercises and tools are highly effective and engaging, strengthen the development of critical skills for recovery, and provide a framework for exploring client concerns and hopes in a supportive and nonthreatening way. This book complements other volumes that have become classics in the stages of change and motivational enhancement approaches. Full of concrete suggestions and practical advice, it is grounded in years of pioneering clinical work and research. As a substance abuse treatment professional, I will rely upon its wisdom in my own clinical work. It will also be an excellent text for graduate-level students of psychology, social work, and substance abuse counseling."--Madeleine Dupre, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor, Substance Abuse Program Manager, DeJarnette Center, Staunton, Virginia

"A valuable addition to the treatment literature. A major strength of the book is the use of a motivational interviewing style approach to facilitate clients' understanding, commitment, and utilization of the different behavioral strategies for movement through relevant change processes at various points during treatment. This is an important resource for students and professionals interested in learning more about evidence-based treatment strategies for substance use problems. Given the solid foundation of the approach, the clarity and specificity of the implementation procedures, and the availability of tools to measure client progress, the book could easily be adapted for use in clinical trials with a variety of clients and settings."--Allen Zweben, DSW, Center for Addiction and Behavioral Health Research and School of Social Welfare, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Format: Paperback
This manual combines the effective therapy of Motivational Interviewing with the Catalysts of Change. It utilizes two tracks, a cognitive track that can be used to motivate substance users by eliciting and providing specific information to raise consciousness and allow for self-reevaluation. It also has a behavioral track that helps substance users become aware of and develop coping strategies for lasting change. The authors did an excellent job arranging these evidenced-based exercises so that the participants seem to be able to grow into the change process from one session to the next. Printable worksheets are provided with every session with very clear step by step instructions. I've been a group therapist for 25 years, this is the best collection of group exercises I've used. As a clinical assistant professor in a university setting I use it with psychology interns as a teaching manual and they have consistantly reported an increased confidence in their ability to provide group therpy following this manual.

This book is chock full of ideas and tools for clinicians doing group therapy for addictions. Lessons can be used as is or adapted to current curriculum. My only criticism is I wish the book had a spiral binding so copies could be made easily without grey shadows on the edge. Other than that, it is worth the money.

As Director of a DUI counseling program for first and multiple offenders, I had been looking for a new curriculum based on the Stages of Change model to equip counselors with the latest and best tools to facilitate progress. This manual is the finest on the market and was chosen to update our program. Of particular help, are the introduction objectives, summary and implementation steps layed out to assist the counselor to focus and prepare each lesson. The initial 35 pages are especially useful to lay out the foundation of the entire process, procedures and underlying dynamics involved in assisting people to process through the various stages. I am certain this work will become normative as the primary source core material in many therapeutic programs.

Having met the author here in Houston, I have been impressed with her knowledge and contributions to Motivational Interviewing. She is a great speaker, and teacher. This manual is a great tool for utilizing MI in a group setting, complete with step by step group outlines and handouts to provide to patients. If you are looking for a tool to use with evidenced based practice for substance abuse, this manual is a "must have".

This book is wonderful. It's easy to use and has thought-provoking and enjoyable exercises. We've begun using it with several drug and alcohol treatment groups. The clients enjoy it and so do the clinicians. I highly recommend this book.

We just started a group for homeless individuals struggling with substance abuse. This book serves as a terrific guide for that group. The individuals in the group like the stages of change concept and the idea that where they are in terms of their particular stage of change is okay. The book itself provides the format for all groups. We have adapted it as needed for our population. So far the group is a real success. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I work in a 30 day IOP and I love the technique of Motivational Interviewing. 1/3 of this guide has enough information for me get my clients through treatment but most ideas are too simple and I find that most clients are already in the Action phase and are ready to address more advanced problems. This guide would be excellent for working with less experienced populations.
