From the Back Cover

A comprehensive, up-to-date, and user-friendly resource

Learning the Language of Addiction Counseling, Second Edition offers an illuminating view of the clinical, theoretical, and research work that comprises the addiction counseling field. Presenting a pragmatic counseling framework rather than trying to reconcile differing theories, this helpful text gives readers the knowledge and guidance needed to choose appropriate techniques and best practices for treating addicted individuals.

Throughout the text, case studies and interactive exercises assist readers in applying knowledge gained, whether in a self-teaching or a classroom setting. Addiction counseling expert and teacher Geri Miller presents a wide variety of topics designed to increase skills and understanding—from cutting-edge research to the latest in the self-help/grassroots therapy movement.

Fully revised and expanded, this Second Edition covers:

  • Theories of counseling related to addiction treatment
  • Assessment and diagnosis of addiction using interviews, behavioral observations, andphysiological and psychometric instruments
  • Assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of dual disorders
  • The treatment process for addictions, including crisis intervention and individual, group, and family therapy
  • Relapse prevention
  • Treatment-related issues such as rape and sexual abuse, sexual orientation, HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, and eating disorders
  • Self-help groups
  • Current and evolving therapy approaches and techniques, including positive psychology, resilience, the stages-of- change model, motivational interviewing, and brief therapy
  • Special treatment issues such as those related to gender, ethnicity, disability, adolescence, the elderly, and the homeless
  • Personal and professional development of the counselor, including ethical issues, court testimony, working in difficult situations, self-care, and other issues in working with addicts
  • Preparing for certification and licensure as an addiction professional

The most comprehensive, up-to-date, and user-friendly resource available, Learning the Language of Addiction Counseling, Second Edition offers a powerful learning tool for both students and professionals.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Janell Myers on February 23, 2006
Format: Paperback
I teach addiction studies at a local university and find this book a great reference and hope to adopt it for one of my classes. It provides a great overview of the addiction treatment field without being too wordy or lost in theory. This is a well-written book which encourages the learner where many books are discouraging!

Format: Paperback
Book is an excellent review of the material and information necessary to perform interventions with chemically dependent patients. Material is presented in such a way that the book can be later used as a reference guide when needing additional material for group presentations.

Format: Paperback
This book has been useful to me on so many levels. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a starting point to start here. The book will not overwhelm nor will it underwhelm. The writing style is easy to read and to the point. The check lists are very useful. Thank you for a well done book on such a varied topic.
