Counselling for Alcohol Problems (Counselling in Practice Series)

Counselling for Alcohol Problems (Counselling in Practice Series)

by RichardVelleman (Author)


This practical book outlines the steps which counsellors can take on a day-to-day basis to help those who have problems with their use of alcohol - either as the main problem, or as one of many. Providing clear guidance, advice and suggestions. Richard Velleman demonstrates that counsellors need to approach clients in an individual manner, attempting to understand, and hence enabling the client to understand, what they are doing and why. The book also examines the important topic of relapse prevention, and how to work with the family members of those with alcohol related problems. The myths and facts surrounding problem drinkers are also investigated. The step-by-step approach is backed up with detailed case illustrations and useful resource material. Counselling in Practice is a new series under the general editorship of Windy Dryden and E. Thomas Dowd. It will be invaluable to trainee and practising counsellors who need straightforward, practical guidance for dealing with clients with specific, but very common, problems.
