From the Inside Flap

Serious controversies surrounding the theory and practice of the addictions field continue to influence and undermine the successful treatment and recovery of alcoholics. In this comprehensive book, editor Stephanie Brown presents a model of alcoholism treatment that is an invaluable resource for making informed treatment decisions to help guide alcoholics and their families on the path to long-term recovery. Written by experts in the field, Treating Alcoholism is filled with up-to-date information and illustrative case examples that will provide clinicians with the skills necessary to address the myriad problems associated with alcoholism. Based on a developmental model of recoveryfrom drinking to transition, early and ongoing recovery, the book offers a wealth of knowledge and specific therapeutic techniques for working with alcoholics and the families of alcoholics in a clinical setting. This jargon-free reference provides professionals with:** clear-cut methods for working with a client's most difficult defenses, particularly denial** a detailed map for assessment that describes the subtleties and pitfalls of the diagnostic process** practical and concrete guidelines for dealing with slips and relapses** a guide to the complexities of diagnosis and treatment in terms of other co-existing psychiatric conditions (dual diagnosis)** answers to questions about the controversial issue of medication and the addictive client** tasks for the therapist and the couple moving through the stages of drinking and recovery** a developmental model of recovery for the family as a whole. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stephanie Brown has excellent theraputic techniques/concepts on how to deal and treat folks suffering from Alcoholism during counselling sessions, and I learned a lot! Ms. Brown's many years of experiences/knowledge are evident on how she statigically deals with denial/relapse within Psychotherapy.
This book deals with an fascinating subject, however, Ms. Brown's writing style is very scientific/academic and dry, and is not for anyone who wants an easy read.
I recommend this book for students studying Psychology or for counselor's who work with clients that have addictions.
