Clinicians are provided with a detailed intervention framework and clear-cut strategies for helping clients to set and meet their own treatment goals. More than two dozen ready-to-use reproducible assessment tools, handouts, homework exercises, and session outlines are supplied in a convenient large-size format.

"Comprehensive and up to date, this book presents essential tools for addressing one of the most prevalent and disabling mental health problems. While a group treatment format has advantages over individual treatment, it is also associated with a number of clinical challenges. These challenges are clearly and effectively addressed by the authors. This invaluable resource is destined to become required reading for mental health care providers who want to further develop their clinical skills."--Stefan G. Hofmann, PhD, Department of Psychology, Boston University

"The Sobells are preeminent in the addiction treatment field. This engaging book presents the evidence behind their innovative group treatment approach and synthesizes decades of research and clinical experience. Readers will find a wealth of clinical examples, practical advice, handouts, and tools to measure client progress. The Sobells show how leading a group is like conducting an orchestra, and provide wise insights into 'making the music come from the group.'"--Mary Marden Velasquez, PhD, Director, Health Behavior Research and Training Institute, University of Texas at Austin

"Group therapy is a standard treatment for substance use disorders, but there is limited guidance for group therapists committed to providing empirically supported treatments. The Sobells fill that gap with this book, which provides a beautiful blend of science and clinical wisdom; great handouts for clients; clear instructions for therapists; and meaningful clinical examples. The authors share their experience and thoughts in a way that invites both therapists-in-training and experienced therapists to use their approach. This book is a gem."--Barbara S. McCrady, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Director, Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse, and Addictions, University of New Mexico
