A quick-reference, multi-media guide to using Motivational Interviewing (MI) to treat co-occurring disorders. Rigorously field-tested by on-the-ground clinicians, this guidebook provides an easy-to-use, evidence-based summary of using MI to treat dual disorders, generally substance abuse and another disorder, like depression or anxiety. MI is a counseling approach that works to facilitate and engage intrinsic motivation within clients to bring about behavior change. This concise guide—one of five in the “Psychotherapy Essentials To Go” series—lays out the basics of MI so any clinician can implement it with their clients. Self-questionnaires, case studies, role play transcripts, diagrams, exercises, and worksheets make it easy for front-line case workers and therapists of all kinds to learn the fundamentals of this treatment modality and put it to use immediately.

A quick-reference, multi-media guide to using Motivational Interviewing (MI) to treat co-occurring disorders. Addiction—whether to alcohol and drugs, sex, gambling, or Internet use—and mental health problems often go hand-in-hand. This concise book summarizes the key principles of a particular therapeutic approach to concurrent disorders, Motivational Interviewing (MI), which guides clients in eliciting and strengthening their desire for change. Laying out a four-stage treatment model—engagement, preparation, active treatment, and continuing care—the book walks readers through key facets of the therapeutic rapport at the heart of MI: working collaboratively on goals; connecting to the patient by understanding his or her strengths, needs, and concerns; and using the core MI skills of open questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries (“OARS”). Readers are immersed in the spirit of MI through explanations and illustrations, preparing them for the practical challenges of therapeutic work with clients who suffer from addiction and mental health problems. Included in this comprehensive guide are a DVD of sample therapy sessions and clinical explication that describe how to implement the protocol, as well as a laminated pocket reminder card. An on-the-go package of practical tools that busy clinicians won’t want to be without. Please note that the ebook version of this title does not include the DVD.

Islamic counselling is a form of counselling which incorporates spirituality into the therapeutic process. Until now there has been little material available on the subject with no one agreed definition of Islamic counselling and what it involves. There has also been a rapidly growing population of Muslims in Western societies with a corresponding rise in need of psychological and counselling services. Islamic Counselling: An Introduction to theory and practice presents a basic understanding of Islamic counselling for counsellors and Islamic counsellors, and provides an understanding of counselling approaches congruent with Islamic beliefs and practices from a faith-based perspective. The book is designed as an introduction for counsellors, its goal is to inform the reader about how the diverse roles of the Islamic counsellor fit together in a comprehensive way and to provide the guidelines that can be potentially integrated into a theoretical framework for use. The book is divided into two parts. Section one: Context and Background, and Section two: Assessment, Models and Intervention Strategies. Islamic Counselling encompasses both current theory, research and an awareness of the practice implications in delivering appropriate and effective counselling interventions with Muslim clients. It will be essential reading for both professionals and students alike.

Procedures for assessment, diagnosis, case formulation, intervention, and progress monitoring are illustrated with rich extended case examples, including session transcripts.

Concurrent Treatment of PTSD and Substance Use Disorders Using Prolonged Exposure (COPE) is a cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy program designed for patients who have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a co-occurring alcohol or drug use disorder. COPE represents an integration of two evidence-based treatments: Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy for PTSD and Relapse Prevention for substance use disorders. COPE is an integrated treatment, meaning that both the PTSD and substance use disorder are addressed concurrently in therapy by the same clinician, and patients can experience substantial reductions in both PTSD symptoms and substance use severity. Patients use the COPE Patient Workbook while their clinician uses the Therapist Guide to deliver treatment. The program is comprised of 12 individual, 60 to 90 minute therapy sessions. The program includes several components: information about how PTSD symptoms and substance use interact with one another; information about the most common reactions to trauma; techniques to help the patient manage cravings and thoughts about using alcohol or drugs; coping skills to help the patient prevent relapse to substances; a breathing retraining relaxation exercise; and in vivo (real life) and imaginal exposures to target the patient's PTSD symptoms.
