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

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for comprehensive learning experience! 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Upgraded Study of Addiction Therapy March 28, 2008
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction October 26, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was a required text for a graduate-level addictions course. This book proved to be a good introductory text for students and can be used by addictions counselors (or other practitioners treating addicted clients/patients) as a reference text.
