Review

This recently published book by Daniel Yalisove introduces students to the basic theories and principles in addiction clinical practice. Readings, resources, and exercises during the book beef up the skills presented in the 14 chapters. The section on Building Session Goals and Strategies (BSGS) is a new take on the Client Individualized Remedy Plan, but with a less confusing presentation of session goals and techniques. This is a good read for the beginning professional, instructor, or clinical supervisor. –Cynthia Moreno Tuohy, Executive Director, NAADAC – The Association for Addiction Professionals

Practically organized and theoretically grounded, this book takes the counselor-in-training from the beginning to the end of the counseling relationship. The concepts of substance abuse counseling come alive in the study room through carefully prepared role-play exercises and an Instructor’s Guide, which is a real bonus for teachers and students alike. If I am a counselor, I want this on my bookshelf. –James L. Sorensen, PhD, UCSF at San Francisco General Hospital

This book is a valuable resource for training entry-level, advanced, and postgraduate mental health professionals. Professors adopting this text might be able to use the supplemental references to structure their lectures or as additional readings for their students. They’ll also take pleasure in the creator’s experience and wisdom when they’re shaping a course based on this textbook with information presented in the Instructor’s Guide. I applaud this contribution. –Douglas M. Scheidt, PhD, The College at Brockport State University of New York
