"A 'must have' for practitioners and clinical researchers in the addictions field. Besides providing state-of-the-art reviews, the second edition broadens the range of addictive behaviors to include non-chemical addictive behaviors. Each chapter is self-contained, making the volume easy to read and allowing the material to be well integrated. This second edition is an outstanding accomplishment, and much needed in a field that has seen major changes over the last two decades."--Mark B. Sobell, PhD, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University
"This superb revision of a landmark volume breaks new ground by expanding the scope of addictive behaviors beyond substance misuse to include gambling, high-risk sexual behavior, and weight-related disorders. 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
"The second edition of this well-known book is a wonderful contribution. Reflecting the ever-changing state of our knowledge, the editors have made major conceptual changes in the framework of this book, making this edition even more useful for educators, students, and clinicians. Current 'hot topics' in the field of addiction treatment are covered in a highly comprehensive and reader-friendly way. Given the pervasiveness of addictive behaviors, I recommend this book to all mental health professionals and educators."--S. Lala Ashenberg Straussner, DSW, CAS, New York University School of Social Work; Founding Editor, Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions
