Widely regarded as the best of its kind, this compassionate, comprehensive guide is revised and updated for the next generation. Clinebell explores the many causes of addiction and lays out a practical plan for helping the afflicted in the context of family and church, as well as community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous. Includes an new annotated bibliography.
For more than a decade, Howard Clinebell's Understanding and Counseling the Alcoholic has been considered the standard work in the field. This updated edition of Clinebell's earlier book expands his work on counseling to encompass the care of persons with drug addiction, behavioral addictions, multiple addictions, and co-dependency. The volume includes a new annotated bibliography.
"This is the most comprehensive summary on understanding and counseling persons with addictions of which I am aware. The book should be part of every counselor's library." --Anderson Spickard, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Vanderbilt Internal Medicine Associates
"This invaluably revised work on addiction is inclusive and comprehensive. Building upon seminal research in alcoholism, this expansive explication of the etiology, treatment, and after-care of those afflicted and affected by addictions provides a pragmatic proposal of care for all practitioners. It gleans the best from the past, appropriates the research of the present, and provides a vision of what effective care might be in the future.--Robert H. Albers, Professor of Pastoral Theology at Luther Seminary and Editor of The Journal of Ministry
