Counselling for Alcohol Problems

by Dr. Richard D.B. Velleman

Part of the Therapy in Practice Series

Counselling for Alcohol Problems Synopsis

Counselling for Alcohol Problems, third edition, is a practical and bestselling guide to working with people who have problems with their use of alcohol. It is the key book recommended by most alcohol counselling courses in the UK, including the Scottish national alcohol counsellors training scheme. The author provides clear guidance for counsellors and demonstrates the need to treat every client as an individual, attempting to understand and therefore enable the client to understand, what they are doing and why. This new edition includes: - New content on the current political, social and counselling context surrounding alcohol use - A wider range of case-studies - New ideas that help students and trainees develop the skills and strategies they need for working with their clients - Further guidance for generic or non-alcohol counsellors who face alcohol problems with their clients. This third edition is an invaluable resource for practitioners, both those specialising in work with alcohol misusers and those who encounter problem drinkers in the context of a more general counselling practice.

Counselling for Alcohol Problems Press Reviews

'A terrific text for courses that train counsellors to deal with alcohol problems, this book is destined to become a classic text in the field. I highly recommend it!' Timothy J. O'Farrell, Chief, Families and Addiction Program Harvard Medical School 'The book remains reeking of alcohol in every page and useful for one human being to help another human being using ideas, strategies and skills that are not only evidence based but full of wisdom.' John Marletta, Alcohol Focus Scotland John Marletta Alcohol Focus Scotland
