Reviews

In this landmark text, [the authors] have given a voice to a population and attention to a problem that heretofore has been overlooked, underserved, or inappropriately treated. Readers will find within these pages a wealth of ways to productively work with addicted women and girls. This book is both a first and a foremost contribution to the field of addiction. - Samuel T. Gladding, Wake Forest University, North Carolina, USA

In a field with no shortage of literature on addiction focused on men and boys, Women, Girls, and Addiction is crucial to developing effective helping approaches with women and girls. Briggs and Pepperell deliver a thorough and informative research- and practice-based exploration of addiction from a feminist perspective that takes into account various sociological, cultural and contextual realities that converge and interact. - Hugh C. Crethar, Oklahoma State University, USA

As Cyndi Briggs and Jennifer Pepperell mention in this book, men and women differ on many levels, yet, for some reason, therapeutic treatment for them does not. This becomes problematic in treating females exhibiting addictive behaviors, as the current methods of treatment fail to focus on the relational and cultural aspects of women and the possible underlying reasons they suffer from substance or process addictions. Briggs and Pepperell offer empowering approaches of working with females across the lifespan in addictions treatment, taking into consideration the multifaceted contexts of women's lives. A feminist perspective in working with women, particularly in addictions, has been needed in mental health! - Dr. Kelly L. Wester, University of North Carolina, USA

"The authors...have taken a refreshing approach to addiction counseling by unabashedly asserting their feminist perspective and integrating it throughout their discussion of counseling issues...well written and organized. To be commended for covering a wide range of topics, often in novel ways. This book provides a useful overview of critical and timely issues related to understanding and treating women and girls with addictive disorders." - Christine Grella, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 55, Release 15
