From the Back Cover:

Back Cover CopyFoundations of Addictions CounselingDavid Capuzzi, Johns Hopkins University Mark D Stauffer ISBN-10: 0205483127 "Foundations of Addictions Counseling "explores the techniques and skills a new practitioner will need in the real world while providing a thorough review of the theory, history, and research of addictions counseling. This text offers prospective counselors a comprehensive array of strategies for working with general and special populations, including assessment tools, approaches for outpatient and inpatient treatment, information about maintenance and relapse prevention, and counseling strategies for couples, families, children and adolescents, and recovering addicts. This book features:

  • Unique chapters on professional issues in addictions counseling (Ch. 3), assessment of client resources and strengths (Ch. 4, 5 ), and gender issues in addictions counseling (Ch. 15), covering topics rarely addressed in other texts.
  • A complete chapter on working in rehabilitation centers and with clients with disabilities (Ch. 17) that will appeal to programs with a rehabilitation specialization.
  • A complete chapter on motivational interviewing (Ch. 6) that explores the most widely-used treatment approach in addictions counseling.
What your colleagues are saying about this book: "It may be the most comprehensive text I have seen in terms of covering many areas that other text books briefly cover or do not include. The writing is easy to understand and the current information is helpful in educating the new counselor entering the field and providing up to date research to all counselors. Please let me know when it is ready for purchase and I will present it to our committee as my preference."Jody Gilfillan - Southeast Community College "The breadth of the material would be very useful for an introductory class on the topic- given that each chapter could, in itself, be a 'stand alone' text." Angie Taylor - University of North Texas
