Publishers Description

For more than a decade, Howard Clinebell's Understanding and Counseling the Alcoholic has been considered the standard work in the field. This updated edition of Clinebell's earlier book expands his work on counseling to encompass the care of persons with drug addiction, behavioral addictions, multiple addictions, and co-dependency. The volume includes a new annotated bibliography.

"This is the most comprehensive summary on understanding and counseling persons with addictions of which I am aware. The book should be part of every counselor's library." --Anderson Spickard, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Vanderbilt Internal Medicine Associates

"This invaluably revised work on addiction is inclusive and comprehensive. Building upon seminal research in alcoholism, this expansive explication of the etiology, treatment, and after-care of those afflicted and affected by addictions provides a pragmatic proposal of care for all practitioners. It gleans the best from the past, appropriates the research of the present, and provides a vision of what effective care might be in the future.--Robert H. Albers, Professor of Pastoral Theology at Luther Seminary and Editor of The Journal of Ministry

Understanding and Counseling: Persons with Alcohol, Drug, and Behavioral Addictions: ...Using Psychology and Religion  Sep 26, 2007
This is an excellent source for those wanting to enter the field of counseling. My brother committed suicide in 2003. Before he did, I asked a pastor about my brother's crack/cocaine addiction, but the pastor was unable to help me. For many years I resented this. After reading this book, I now understand why my questions were not answered, and why that pastor continued to ask question after question. At the time I did not understand you need so much more information than simply asking what can I do to help.
