Johnson, Sharon L.


Therapist's Guide to Substance Abuse Intervention is a must have reference for clinicians specializing in substance abuse as well as therapists with a more general practice. Presenting information in easy to read outline form, the guide identifies how to assess, diagnose, and treat substance abuse or substance dependence. Like Johnson's best selling book on clinical intervention, this guide similarly presents relevant forms, checklists, and business documents to cover both informational needs, as well as providing practical tools toward improving one's practice. Divided into five sections, part I provides information for understanding substance classification and diagnostic criteria. Part II focuses on assessment, discussing diagnostic instruments, samples of biopsychosocial questionnaires, and guidelines on patient interviewing. Part III discusses treatment guidelines and continuum of care, discussing the creation of a treatment plan and how best to select from different types of therapy as a treatment option. Part IV covers solution-focused therapy and special populations (e.g. teenagers, the elderly, patients with comorbid diagnoses, etc.). Part V presents skill-building resources and offers abundant tools for therapists to use directly from the book, or that can be reformulated and personalized for use with patients.Johnson, Sharon L. is the author of 'Therapist's Guide to Substance Abuse Intervention', published 2003 under ISBN 9780123875815 and ISBN 0123875811.
