9780121746537: Counseling Problem Gamblers: A Self-Regulation Manual for Individual and Family Therapy (Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional)

Over the past decade, legal wagering has expanded rapidly in North America. In 1998 alone, people lost 50 billion dollars in legal betting and it is estimated that illegal wagering is twice that amount. A recent government report, based on the broadest population survey, concludes that the lifetime and pathological gamblers in the U.S. range between 4 and 10 million persons and is growing. If we include the families affected by problem gambling then the potential impact is indeed prodigious. Virtually no community in the U.S. and Canada is left untouched by entertainment or problem gambling. Treating problem gambling has evolved from a small group of practitioners in the 1980's working in specialty impatient units into an international enterprise that affects the caseload of many mental health professionals. Owing to its quiet origins, problem gambling treatment strategies are not well known throughout the clinical community. Consequently the average clinician is him/herself "learning as they go." This approach does not benefit either client or therapist. As the book's first chapter makes clear, problem gambling differs significantly from substance abuse, its nearest clinical relative. Not attending to these differences leads to poor results and clinical failure. This book is the one essential tool needed by clinicians treating or likely to treat problem gambling. Written by a clinician with wide experience, it is intended for the general clinician treating or likely to treat problem gambling desiring a comprehensive, yet user-friendly guide.

Key Features
* Assessment and treatment of problem gambling and those affected by it is discussed

From the Back Cover:

Problem gambling is on the increase in today's society, with devastating effects on family finances and relationships. Until now, clinicians had no comprehensive, user-friendly, single source for understanding and treating the condition of pathological gambling. Counseling Problem Gamblers and Their Families: A Clinician's Guide pulls together clinical wisdom and research findings into a treatment package aimed at developing the component skills for successful recovery. It makes available, with instructions, the most well regarded assessment instruments for identifying gambling problems and discusses how they relate to DSM diagnosis.

Counseling Problem Gamblers and Their Families: A Clinician's Guide covers a wide range of issues related to problem gambling and those affected by it. Among the unique features of the book are:

· Step-by-step treatment plans
· Diagnostic instruments developed by the author
· Focus on specific cultural concerns, with clinical applications for women, minorities, and religiously committed persons
· Integration of spirituality in treatment
· Coping strategies for family members
Foreword written by Joan Franklin, President of the National Council of Problem Gambling

About the Author:

Joseph W. Ciarrocchi completed his doctorate in clinical psychology at Catholic University of America. For eight years he was Director of a comprehensive inpatient and outpatient treatment program for problem gambling and substance abuse at Taylor Manor Hospital in Maryland. In that capacity he coordinated a team of clinicians that included as its psychiatrist, Robert Custer, M.D., the individual most responsible for the inclusion of problem gambling in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. Throughout this experience Dr. Ciarrocchi conducted some of the earliest empirical research with pathological gamblers as well as with their spouses. Since that time his accomplishments in the field are recognized by his certification as a Gambling Counselor Supervisor by the National Council on Problem Gambling and by his presentations at national and international conferences. He has conducted training workshops on problem gambling treatment in Iowa, Missouri, Delaware, Wisconsin, Illinois, Louisiana, and Maryland in the U.S., and in New Zealand, Taiwan, and Hong Kong internationally. His broad-based knowledge of the addictions field is acknowledged by his certification of proficiency in the treatment of alcohol and other psychoactive substance use disorders by the American Psychological Association's College of Professional Psychology. Dr. Ciarrocchi has written four books in the area of mental health treatment including his popular treatment manual for obsessive compulsive disorder, The Doubting Disease: Help for Scrupulosity and Religious Compulsions (Paulist Press). He currently is membership chair and newsletter editor for the special interest group, Spiritual Issues in Behavior Change, in the Association for the Advancement of Behavior Therapy. His empirical studies, in addition to pathological gambling, include research on personality characteristics of substance abusers and the relationship of spiritual variables to psyc
