Description

"Written as an introduction to the field of addiction counseling, this text covers
the fundamental knowledge, understanding, and skills necessary to counsel
people who are struggling with addiction. Drs. Brooks and McHenry provide
a straightforward, compassionate, and holistic approach to treatment and
recovery, from the major theoretical underpinnings, to assessment and
diagnosis, to relapse prevention and spirituality. With a focus on current
clinical applications and how-tos, this book is ideal both for master s-level
addictions courses and for mental health clinicians.
Topics addressed include cultural and gender issues, including work with
LGBT clients; drug classifications and referral; assessment, diagnosis, and
interview techniques; the continuum from nonuse to addiction; work in
college/university, school, and community/mental health agency settings;
developmental approaches in treatment; the role of the family; grief and
loss in addiction; group counseling; relapse and recovery; spirituality and
support groups; addictions training, certification, and ethics; and the
importance of counselor self-care.
