This skill-building primer provides a framework for understanding substance abuse and teaches the basic concepts and skills necessary for effective counseling of clients with substance use disorders. In Part I, Dr. Yalisove discusses counselor roles and the fundamental principles of substance abuse counseling. He then provides a synopsis of several key substance abuse theories as well as his own Building Session Goals and Strategies method and the Eight Stage Process of Counseling approach, all of which are practical, compatible means for learning and mastering clinical counseling skills. Part II illustrates applications of the tenets of these approaches in clinical situations-from beginning counseling sessions through termination-using experiential exercises, role-plays, and clinical scenario examples. Chapters on group work, counseling clients with dual disorders, family counseling, and working with diverse client populations follow. A helpful chapter on creating client treatment plans and writing clinical reports rounds out the book. Dr. Yalisove's clear and concise writing style and his practical approach to developing critical thinking and counseling skills makes this an ideal supplemental text for addictions courses.--Amazon.com.

BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Major research advances have substantially improved our understanding of the biology of HIV and the pathogenesis (i.e., origin and development) of AIDS. The pathogenesis of AIDS is now known to result from the ability of HIV to replicate at the rate of a billion new virions (viral particles) per day and nearly 10 trillion new virions over the course of HIV infection. This, countered by the ability of the body to produce CD4+ T cell lymphocytes (a primary target cell for HIV), sets the stage for the struggle between HIV and the immune system-a struggle that lasts from the first day of HIV infection to end-stage disease and death.
