Serious controversies surrounding the theory and practice of the addictions field continue to influence and undermine the successful treatment and recovery of alcoholics.

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.
