For over 30 years, Dr. Marlatt conducted pioneering work on understanding and preventing relapse in substance abuse treatment and was a leading proponent of the harm reduction approach to treating addictive behaviors. He was a recipient of honors including the Jellinek Memorial Award for outstanding contributions to knowledge in the field of alcohol studies, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Innovators Combating Substance Abuse Award, the Research Society on Alcoholism's Distinguished Researcher Award, and the Career/Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.

Review:

"The second edition of Assessment of Addictive Behaviors provides cogent and comprehensive coverage of what is now known to be essential in our understanding and treatment of addiction; namely, assessment of the biological, psychological, and sociocultural contributors to the addictive process. The text offers an integrated biopsychosocial orientation that is as sensitive to the latest areas of 'nontraditional' addiction (e.g., gambling and sexual risk behavior) as it is to ethnocultural issues. Practitioners, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers will find this text to be an invaluable resource in their quest to understand and evaluate the complexities of addictive processes."--Peter M. Monti, PhD, Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, Brown University

"A 'must have' for practitioners and clinical researchers in the addictions field. Besides providing state-of-the-art reviews, the second edition broadens the range of addictive behaviors to include non-chemical addictive behaviors. Each chapter is self-contained, making the volume easy to read and allowing the material to be well integrated. This second edition is an outstanding accomplishment, and much needed in a field that has seen major changes over the last two decades."--Mark B. Sobell, PhD, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University

"This superb revision of a landmark volume breaks new ground by expanding the scope of addictive behaviors beyond substance misuse to include gambling, high-risk sexual behavior, and weight-related disorders. The book skillfully reflects conceptual and empirical developments since the first edition and highlights innovations in applied measurement, such as longitudinal methods of data collection in the natural environment. Researchers and practitioners in clinical disciplines and public health professions will find it to be an invaluable resource for advancing knowledge and developing evidence-based interventions, which rest upon and follow from sound measurement practices."--Jalie A. Tucker, PhD, MPH, School of Public Health, University of Alabama at Birmingham

"The second edition of this well-known book is a wonderful contribution. Reflecting the ever-changing state of our knowledge, the editors have made major conceptual changes in the framework of this book, making this edition even more useful for educators, students, and clinicians. Current 'hot topics' in the field of addiction treatment are covered in a highly comprehensive and reader-friendly way. Given the pervasiveness of addictive behaviors, I recommend this book to all mental health professionals and educators."--S. Lala Ashenberg Straussner, DSW, CAS, New York University School of Social Work; Founding Editor, Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions


"A great resource for any professional involved in the treatment, research, and education of addictive behaviors." (Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions 2007-12-28)

"Reflects the collective scholarship and clinical wisdom of the contributors....Addiction is defined broadly, with a chapter devoted to each addiction....Each chapter details both a general overview of assessment and specific biopsychosocial aspects of assessment....Each chapter also contains sample assessment instruments and a comprehensive exhaustive list of references....This book is a treasure that will be useful to anybody who treats patients with addictive disorders." (Psychiatric Services 2007-12-28)

"A comprehensive and [a] much needed resource for both researchers and clinicians....The importance of accurate assessment for treatment planning and for evaluating treatment outcomes is stressed throughout each chapter....A valuable resource for clinicians and researchers tackling the problem of addiction behaviors. This book not only provides a concise a summary of traditional addictive behaviors, but also advances the field by including discussion of non-traditional addictive behaviors and the issues raised in assessing them." (Clinical Psychology Review 2007-12-28)
