Since the successful predecessor of this volume was first published, a new generation of research has become available on addictive behaviors such as drinking, smoking, and other substance use. The articles in this all-new collection, reprinted from American Psychological Association journals, describe a wide range of biological, psychological, and social approaches to researching and treating addictive behaviors. The effects of addictive behaviors range from ill health and social and family problems to economic and legal troubles.Psychologists' roles in mediating the negative effects of addiction include researching the effects of drug action, studying the epidemiology and etiology of drug and alcohol abuse, designing prevention programs, understanding the trajectory of substance abuse and family risk factors, screening and assessment, finding the best models of treatment, and understanding the needs of specific populations. The latest approaches to all of these tasks are showcased in this volume, which will be of interest to clinical health psychologists and other mental health professionals from graduate students to seasoned clinicians and researchers.

Written for beginning level students, SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING, Fourth Edition provides a good, practical overview of substance abuse counseling. Known for the way it addresses key issues early, including the designing of specialized treatments to fit the individual needs of a client. SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING, Fourth Edition, also emphasizes the tendency of substance-abusing clients and their families to form a heterogeneous group that must be treated from an individualized perspective. Authors Lewis, Dana, and Blevins believe strongly that clients differ not only in the specific behaviors and consequences associated with their drug use but also in culture, gender, social environments, physical concerns, mental health and a host of other variables. Using an integrated approach, the authors describe innovative methods for meeting clients’ needs through personalized assessment, treatment planning, and behavior change strategies, showing students how to select the most effective treatment modalities for each client.

It is based on the gestalt view of the self-medicating dynamic as one of pattern repetition and difficulty overcoming rigid patterns of response to sensory experience and life's routine demands. The book provides a practical model for helping clients with the gamut of self-medicating behaviors-substance and alcohol abuse, overeating, gambling, overworking, rage, and others-and describes a recovery program as a system created to change one's lifestyle over time through the development of disciplines that ultimately shape one's life. The volume will also be helpful to therapists in other modalities as an alternative therapy when treating self-medicating clients, as well as a spiritual alternative to the 12-step approach. Key Features: Applies current gestalt therapy approaches to the spectrum of addictive behaviors Provides practical treatment models for self-medicating behaviors Written by a prominent practitioner and scholar of gestalt therapy Offers a spiritual alternative to the 12-step approach to recovery
