Description

For students taking courses in substance abuse and addictions counseling.

A practical collection of tools and strategies for prospective addictions counselors that includes a solid foundation of research, theory, and history.

Practical and comprehensive, Foundations of Addiction Counseling explores an array of techniques and skills that a new practitioner will need in the real world while providing a thorough review of the research, theory, and history of addiction counseling. With chapters written by expert scholars, this text covers many topics in-depth often ignored by other comparable books, such as professional issues in addictions counseling, the assessment of client strengths, gender issues in substance abuse, working in rehabilitation centers, and working with clients with disabilities.

The second edition of this unique text offers prospective counselors the tools and strategies they will need for working with general and special populations, including assessment tools, strategies for outpatient and inpatient treatment, information about maintenance and relapse prevention, and counseling strategies for couples, families, children, adolescents, college students, and recovering addicts. The revised edition includes expanded discussions on a number of topics, new case studies, and completely updated resources and web references.
