Counselling for Alcohol Problems - Therapy in Practice (Paperback)Dr. Richard D.B. Velleman (author)
- We can order this
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.
