This second edition of Assessment of Addictive Behaviors provides cogent and comprehensive coverage of what is now known to be essential in our understanding and treatment of addiction, namely, assessment of the biological, psychological, and sociocultural contributors to the addictive process. The text offers an integrated biopsychosocial orientation that is as sensitive to the latest areas of 'nontraditional' addiction (e.g., gambling and sexually risky behaviors) as it is to ethnocultural issues. Practitioners, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers will find this text to be an invaluable resource in their quest to understand and evaluate the complexities of addictive processes. - Peter M. Monti, PhD, Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, Brown University
Superb... The book skillfully reflects conceptual and empirical developments since the first edition and highlights innovations in applied measurement, such as longitudinal methods of data collection in the natural environment. Researchers and practitioners in clinical disciplines and public health professions will find it to be an invaluable resource for advancing knowledge and developing evidence-based interventions, which rest upon and follow from sound measurement practices. - Jalie A. Tucker, PhD, MPH, School of Public Health, University of Alabama at Birmingham
