About this item

This manual for professionals presents a complete group treatment program for substance abusers, centered on the stages-of-change paradigm. Part 1 begins with an overview of theory related to stages-of-change therapy and the motivational approach. This part of the book offers ideas on how to pair this model with traditional treatment approaches, along with notes and tips on intake and screening, group size and composition, session frequency, and basic principles of group work. Part 2 presents outlines and materials for 35 sessions chronologically ordered sessions. Each session gives notes on rationale, objectives, materials needed, suggested discussion prompts, step-by-step session tasks, and suggestions for closing the session, as well as reproducible worksheet-style client handouts for the session. Many handouts include b&w illustrations. Handouts can also be downloaded and printed from a companion web site. Integrating the latest thinking and practice, this second edition contains eight new sessions on areas such as mindfulness, self-acceptance, and the impact of substances on the brain. There is expanded material on motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral techniques. About 40 of the book’s 58 handouts are new or revised.
