Reviews

"This book describes what a cognitive model of addiction looks like and presents a clear rationale for an open-ended group. Clients are encouraged to discuss their challenges, with a strong focus on achievable changes that they can implement. The cognitive model guides rather than drives the discussion. This team of authors knows the field very well, and the book is well illustrated with excellent practical examples. This book has real depth. It is an admirably clear call to skillful practice."--Stephen Rollnick, PhD, Cochrane Institute of Primary Care and Public Health, Cardiff University, United Kingdom "Although the group format has become one of the most widely used modalities for treating substance use disorders, books that offer scientifically based, practical guidance for leading these groups are rare. This book presents a comprehensive cognitive model of addiction and provides a fresh approach to extending cognitive interventions to the group setting. Rather than creating a 'cookbook,' the authors have maintained a nice balance between the process of group therapy and the application of specific techniques."--Mary Marden Velasquez, PhD, Director, Health Behavior Research and Training Institute, School of Social Work, University of Texas at Austin "This very welcome book expands the domain of cognitive therapy. Building on the empirical literature, the authors adapt cognitive therapy for conducting open therapy groups with clients who have a variety of addictive disorders. The extensive emphasis on--and many examples of--cognitive case conceptualization is particularly helpful."--Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, and Linda Carter Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University "Both novices and experienced professionals will find a clinically sound, theoretically supported, and empirically grounded model of group therapy for people struggling with addictions. Strengths of this reader-friendly treatment guide include clinical illustrations; clear and informative figures, tables, and forms; and cognitive case conceptualizations that illustrate how to apply cognitive theory to individual group members and the group as a whole. The authors do a superb job of translating theoretical and empirical knowledge into practice principles. This is a first-rate book that will be a welcome addition to the libraries of addictions professionals."--Meredith Hanson, DSW, Professor and Director, PhD in Social Work Program, Fordham University
