Practice-oriented, evidence-based guidance on treating alcohol problems – one of the most widespread health problems in modern society.
This volume in the series Advances in Psychotherapy – Evidence-Based Practice provides therapists and students with practical and evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of alcohol problems.
Alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence are widespread, and the individual and societal problems associated with these disorders have made the study and treatment of alcohol use disorders a clinical research priority. Research over the past several decades has led to the development of excellent empirically supported treatment methods. This book aims to increase clinicians’ access to empirically supported interventions for alcohol use disorders, with the hope that these methods will become the standard in clinical practice.
It is both a compact “how-to” reference, for use by professional clinicians in their daily work, and an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education. The volume has a similar structure to others in the series, and is a “reader friendly” guide covering all aspects of clinical practice. It makes liberal use of tables, boxed clinical examples, and clinical vignettes, and the appendix includes numerous assessment instruments, tools, and homework assignments for use in daily practice.
