Perfect as the major resource in first courses in Substance Abuse Counseling and Drugs and Behavior or for general clinicians as an on-the-job resource. Could also be useful as an adjunct to, not a replacement for, a number of core counseling courses: counseling theory, technique...s of counseling, counseling strategies, and school counseling This guide is designed to increase the knowledge base of the reader/student about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) and to help them more clearly understand the process of working with clients who are misusing or abusing these drugs-now updated to include the changing substance abuse problems in our nation and around the world. Recognized for its clarity, accessibility, and practical approach, this widely used text thoroughly examines substance abuse in the population, addressing ways to measure the problem and ways to treat individuals and families who seek assistance. The authors educate prospective and practicing clinicians and counselors by guiding them, step-by-step, through the process of working with substance-abuse clients. While the chapters generally build on each other as they take readers through the theory and practice of substance abuse counseling, each chapter can be used as a stand-alone source of valuable information. Illustrative case studies with critical thinking questions plus MyCounselingLab videos and exercises give readers opportunities to examine and discuss a wide variety of cases. Individual chapters on special populations add substantial depth to the text's treatment of its subject.
