Book Description

This important work elucidates why relapse is so common for people recovering from addictive behavior problems--and what can be done to keep treatment on track. It provides an empirically supported framework for helping people with addictive behavior problems develop the skills to maintain their treatment goals, even in high-risk situations, and deal effectively with setbacks that occur. The expert contributors clearly identify the obstacles that arise in treating specific problem behaviors, review the factors that may trigger relapse at different stages of recovery, and present procedures for teaching effective cognitive and behavioral coping strategies.



Product Description

Review

"More than two decades ago, Marlatt offered a way to analyze and prevent relapse that was one of those seminal insights that changed the field of addiction science forever. In the second edition of this influential work, Marlatt and Donovan provide an updated reconceptualization of the relapse process that incorporates cutting-edge research on craving, expectancies, contingencies, and self-regulation. Top scientist-practitioners offer a panoramic view of relapse prevention across the most extensive range of behaviors addressed in one place."  - Carlo C. DiClemente, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland–Baltimore County, USA

"Each chapter provides an overview of the management and prevention of relapse for specific problem areas. This book is absolutely essential for anyone working in the addictions field." - Linda Carter Sobell, PhD, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University, USA

"Clinicians, educators, and researchers should read - and reread - this book. It can be used as a primary text in graduate-level courses on addictive behavior." - Meredith Hanson, DSW, Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service, USA
