Written as an introduction to the field of addiction counseling,
this text covers the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to
counsel people who are struggling with addiction. Drs. Brooks and
McHenry provide a straightforward 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 mental health clinicians. Topics covered are 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. Exploration questions and suggested activities are
presented in each chapter. *Requests for digital versions from the
