This book uses composite clinical examples and the authors' own practical experience to demonstrate how to treat addicted survivors of trauma and abuse. By integrating mental health paradigms with disease models of addiction, and combining psychotherapeutic techniques with 12-step recovery practices, the authors present an easy-to-replicate model for assessment and treatment. They provide an overview of the various types and resulting effects of childhood abuse and other traumas, and then describe the disease of addiction and its treatment. Simultaneously addressing both addiction and survivor issues, the book describes ways to identify and assess substance-dependent survivors, and organize, direct, and plan their treatment. In addition, it provides specific strategies for working with significant others, adolescents, and individuals who also exhibit antisocial, borderline, and narcissistic personality disorders. This book is aimed at psychologists, chemical dependency counselors, social workers, and family therapists.

Chemical Dependency: Women at Risk shows readers how to design and implement drug and alcohol treatment programs that take into account not only gender but also the cultural differences among women. Whether you're a counselor, researcher, or health care provider, this book will show you how to abandon 'one-size-fits-all’treatment approaches that fail to address the individual needs of women undergoing substance abuse treatment. Instead, you'll learn to recognize and respect cultural and individual differences among women. Use this book as a guide to develop your own innovative multicultural treatment approaches to substance abuse. Chemical Dependency offers a three-stage cultural assessment model that serves as a key starting point for transforming your services into culture-, gender-, and ethnic-sensitive programs. You'll acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to develop recovery services that identify patterns of belief and customs that can assist or hinder women in achieving and maintaining recovery. Readers of Chemical Dependency discover the obstacles to the development of effective women's recovery programs, as well as key service elements of successful recovery programs. In addition, they witness firsthand how to integrate an understanding of women's lives from a multigenerational and life span perspective with consideration of issues such as sexuality, violence and sexual abuse, and codependence and parenting. As a result, professionals in the field at all levels are equipped with the necessary know-how for providing services to underserved women and offering them the assistance they so desperately need to overcome their substance abuse problems. Chemical Dependency provides readers with the most comprehensive analysis to date of marijuana addiction in women with effective methodss for outreach, intervention, treatment, and research. The techniques it offers for establishing discussion frameworks for sexuality and HIV in the context of recovery can be incorporated immediately into existing treatment programs, as can its strategies to assist lesbians and bisexual women in confronting the trauma they suffer as a result of addiction, sexism, and societal homophobia. The book's authors are professionals in the fields of treatment, research, prevention, community organizing, and policymaking. Readers acquire from their collaborative effort an understanding of alcohol and drug addiction as a complex 'bio-psycho-social-spiritual’disease. Counselors, researchers, health care providers, and faculty and students of chemical dependency programs will find Chemical Dependency an invaluable guidebook for the development or improvement of their own approaches to successful intervention and treatment of women susceptible to drug and alcohol abuse.

Psychological assessment is practiced in wide-ranging settings to address the varied clinical and administrative needs of veteran populations. Such assessment blends record review, clinical interviews of the veteran and collateral sources of information, behavioral observations, and psychological testing. This book promotes the care and well-being of veterans by bringing together knowledgeable and experienced psychologists to discuss a range of psychological assessment methods and procedures. It aims to help patients and their families, healthcare providers, and concerned citizens gain an improved understanding of veterans' cognitive functioning, emotional states, personality traits, behavioral patterns, and daily functioning. The book begins with a history of the psychological assessment of veterans and investigates its efficacy in different settings, including outpatient mental health, long-term care, primary care, home-based primary care, and telemental health. Later chapters address assessment of a variety of disorders or presenting problems, including substance use disorders, psychotic disorders, mood disorders and suicidal thoughts and behavior, PTSD and other anxiety disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, dementia, pain and pain-related disorders, and polytrauma. The book concludes with important special considerations, including assessment of symptom and performance validity, assessment of homeless veterans and health-related quality of life, and ethical, legal, and professional issues. Psychological Assessment of Veterans provides an essential reference and guide for clinical psychologists, including those working in the subspecialties, and psychology trainees who work with veterans.
