The leading manual on group-based treatment of substance use disorders, this highly practical book is grounded in the transtheoretical model and emphasizes the experiential and behavioral processes of change. The program helps clients move through the stages of change by building skills for acknowledging a problem, deciding to act, developing and executing a plan, and accomplishing other critical tasks. The expert authors provide step-by-step guidelines for implementing the 35 structured sessions, along with strategies for enhancing motivation. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the volume includes 58 reproducible handouts. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

See also Substance Abuse Treatment and the Stages of Change, Second Edition, by Gerard J. Connors et al., which explores how the transtheoretical model can inform treatment planning and intervention in diverse clinical contexts. Review There is a dizzying array of seemingly correct methods for helping people change, so what is a busy practitioner to do? Velasquez and her colleagues have supplied the answer: do the right thing at the right time. This book provides an orientation to the transtheoretical model from one of its originators and outlines group treatment sessions developed by savvy clinicians. The second edition retains the best-loved features of the first edition while adding new developments from motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and positive psychology. Each session includes the processes engaged, the tasks to be accomplished, and the markers that help us know if clients are making progress--plus, most important, the step-by-step instructions to get the work done.--David B. Rosengren, PhD, President, Prevention Research Institute, Lexington, Kentucky I love this book. The second edition distills the best strategies from motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and other approaches. It’s exactly what I need: practical strategies, tips, and handouts that make it easy to conduct groups. The progression of session topics--from precontemplation, to contemplation, to action--works really well. I love the inclusion of new activities related to mindfulness, acceptance, and wellness. Hands down, my favorite book for running clinical groups!--Scott T. Walters, PhD, School of Public Health, University of North Texas Health Science Center This reader-friendly second edition contains useful, sensible instructions for flexibly facilitating group treatment for people with substance use disorders--I cant say enough good things about it! It is well organized by sessions, and provides excellent clinical resource materials. This book can be used by practitioners in clinical settings; faculty who teach courses in group therapy, addictive behaviors, or evidence-based practice; and researchers who conduct clinical trials. A great resource for psychology students, it brings to life important concepts such as readiness to change, while showing how to apply them in an empirically supported treatment.--Bruce S. Liese, PhD, ABPP, Department of Family Medicine, University of Kansas Medical Center This second edition contains the latest research on the stages and processes of change, motivational interviewing, self-control, positive psychology, and mindfulness in relapse prevention, and applies this content in new group sessions. Included are objectives, step-by-step directions, tasks, and handouts that can be used by veteran and new group facil
