Addiction Counseling Review: Preparing for Comprehensive, Certification, and Licensing Examinations

Buy
Addiction Counseling Review: Preparing for Comprehensive, Certification, and Licensing Examinations offers a clear, readable overview of the knowledge and skills those training as alcohol or other drug counselors need to pass their final degree program, certification, and licensing examinations. It is organized into six sections: Addiction Basics, Personality Development and Drugs, Common Client Problems, Counseling Theories and Skills, Treatment Resources, and Career Issues. Each chapter includes challenging study questions that enable readers to assess their own level of understanding, including true/false, multiple choice, and provocative discussion questions. Each chapter also provides a glossary of key terms and, in addition to references, annotated suggestions for further reading and Web site exploration.

This book will be a resource to which students and trainees will go on referring to long after it has helped them through their examinations. In addition, faculty and established professionals will find it a useful one-stop summary of current thinking about best practice.

The primary purpose of this book is to help AOD counseling students, interns, and trainees to prepare for two (possibly three) exams: (a) the comprehensive exams usually required for graduation in AOD college programs, and (b) the certification or licensing exam required by professional organizations and states. This book offers students enrolled in AOD courses a handy review guide.

Others who will find this book useful include program administrators, grant writers, researchers, and policy makers in the field of addiction. AOD educators, faculty in the behavioral sciences, counselors, clinical supervisors, mental health professionals, and all who work with drug and alcohol related problems—education, health, drug prevention, drug control, research, and public policy—who wish to update their knowledge will find this book attractive. Containing well-organized and current content information, this practical review volume provides a useful handbook. In short, this book is both a professional handbook and a course textbook.
