Reviews - What do customers think about Addictions Counseling: A Practical and Comprehensive Guide for Counseling People with Addictions?
From Back Cover ~ Feb 28, 2006
"A fresh and greatly needed approach to helping the whole person; it fills a great gap in the existing literature. -Thomas Perrin, author of I Am an Adult Who Grew Up in an Alcoholic Family
"A valuable addition to the field." - Perspectives on Addiction Nursing
"Counselors just beginning their careers or those who often must do the work of counseling-such as ministers, teachers, and nurses-will greatly appreciate the value of this book as an introdution to the field. Experienced therapists will value the creative insights of the author and her skilled blending of approaches that many have considered antagonistic, such as the two views proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous and cognitive therapy. It is a wise, flexible, and openminded guide that pulls together the contemporary knowledge about substance abuse into one source." - Dr. William Van Ornum
"This rather brief but valuable book would serve as a good academic text for chemical dependency counseling programs as well as being a nice addition to any counselor's personal library. (It) deserves a high rating." - Journal of Psychoactive Drugs
