Editorial Reviews

Review

A welcome contribution to the insufficiently addressed issue of gender-based variations in the treatment of substance abuse and process addictions, Straussner and Zelvin's volume addresses an outstanding range of related topics including parenting, AIDS, the high-achieving patient, sexism in AA, gambling, eating disorders, and concurrent disorders (depression in women, attention-deficit in men). The book provides theoretical grounding as well as valuable applications germane to treatment that transcend the particulars of gender. It combines sensitive treatment of critical subjects with real clinical utility. (Ronna H. Weiss, Ph.D.)

This is a timely, outstanding, beautifully organized collection of essays by highly knowledgeable and experienced clinicians on the interrelationship and impact of gender identity and sexuality on substance abuse. The essays on women poignantly emphasize the importance of the relational model in understanding the nature o female addictions and the process of treatment. The section on men provides groundbreaking insight into the connection between issues of dependency, control, and power and the dynamics of substance abuse. Theoretically sophisticated and yet practical in its clinical wisdom, Gender and Addictions is strongly recommended for practitioners at all levels of experience. (Jeffrey Seinfeld, Ph.D.)

Format: Hardcover
Treatment of adddiction focuses on the acceptance of this serious and health-threatening condition and encourages the commitment to address its presence with a plan of care that includes physical, psychological, emotional, relational and spiritual repair. But one-size treatment does not fit all, and this excellent book addresses the wide range of variations that emerge in treatment of substance abuse and addictions in both men and women. With sensitivity, clarity and astute professional observations, the contributors discuss a range of topics including parenting, AIDS, the high-achieving patient, sexism in Alcoholics Anonymous, gambling, eating disorders and concurrent disorders, such as depression in women and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in men.
Simplistic answers are no longer useful in addiction treatment --we might argue that they even set up patients for failure and discouragement -- and it is time that both treatment adminstrators and clinicians recognize the importance of moving beyond gender sensitivity to gender competence. Without sacrificing depth or range, this book also addresses the importance of the relational theory that has attracted interest among progressive treatment professionals while also offering practical ideas and suggestions for veteran clinicians and newcomers alike. It is also a valuable text for students and educators.
