Review:

This is one of the best books that I have ever read - and possibly the best one written about people with co-occurring problems of addiction and other serious mental and emotional disorders. --Albert Ellis in the Foreword to this book, written shortly before his death in 2007.

Perhaps you think Albert Ellis's REBT (Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy) involves the mindless but forceful repetition of a few simple concepts. This book should change your mind. . . . Just as medical illustrations can be a better teaching tool than actual photos, the authors' constructed session transcripts are an excellent tool for teaching the subtleties of REBT, particularly as applied to individuals with serious and combined substance and mental health problems. The transcripts are interspersed with highly helpful explanations of what is happening in the sessions and how it is being responded to. . . .
This book is ideally suited for professionals in the public treatment system, on either side of the substance abuse/mental health divide the authors hope to help end. Because of the rich clinical wisdom throughout this book, even experienced REBT practitioners are likely to admire and learn from it. Those who knew Ellis personally will re-experience him on these pages. . . . Ellis has a well-deserved reputation as a humorist, and Velten and Penn carry on this tradition. Their humor will be especially meaningful to public treatment system professionals, whose world is well understood by Velten and Penn. However, I suspect just about all readers will come away from this book as I did, laughing with my clients and with myself. To laugh and learn simultaneously, what a treat! --A. Tom Horvath, PhD, ABPP, President, Practical Recovery; President, SMART Recovery
