Practitioners helping smokers to quit can be more effective by
learning key therapeutic techniques aimed at increasing any
smoker's chances of success. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for
Smoking Cessation is a valuable guidebook to an empirically based
CBT approach to smoking cessation that has been shown to be
effective with or without the use of medications. This approach
emphasizes techniques for enhancing the smoker's motivation and
confidence to quit, and teaching the smoker steps for preparing to
quit, coping with the difficulties that emerge after quitting, and
transitioning to become a long term nonsmoker.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Smoking Cessation offers the
fundamental counseling strategies and interventions that have been
established, researched, and refined over the past decade. This
program outlines essential components that should be included in
the treatment of any smoker, as well as steps to take when faced
with smokers likely to have particular difficulty quitting. Unique
to this volume is the inclusion of a specifically tailored CBT
model designed to address weight gain concerns in the smoker.
Perkins, Conklin, and Levine are leading researchers on effective
smoking cessation intervention for those concerned about the
potential gain in weight that accompanies quitting, and offer a
flexible approach that allows the practitioner to tailor
interventions to each individual. An invaluable addition to any
health professional's repertoire, the treatment model presented in
this book provides practitioners with the tools necessary to help
their clients to quit smoking.
