Overview

Cognitive therapist and addiction specialist Frank Ryan has developed an elegant and simple programme for treatment based on the motivational mechanisms of addiction and organised into the "4Ms":

  • Motivation and engagement
  • Manage impulses and craving
  • Mood management
  • Maintenance and relapse prevention

At each stage, cognitive and behavioural strategies are mapped out that enhance self-regulation and emphasise cognitive control. The theoretical framework and clinical strategies are derived from cognitive behaviour therapy, but are framed within a cognitive neuroscience paradigm.

This volume provides both a conceptual framework of this emergent paradigm, and a roadmap for augmenting existing therapeutics and generating innovative techniques to directly target the core cognitive and behavioural mechanisms of addiction. It will ultimately empower both addiction sufferers, and all those engaged in addiction treatment and recovery.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Nevertheless, I would recommend this book to practitioners in the alcohol and other drugs, and gambling treatment field, and to postgraduate students in health sciences.” (Drug And Alcohol Review, 1 May 2015)

“International Construction Contract Law” deals not only with the standard forms of construction contracts produced by the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), practical aspects such as claims, variations and management of risk, but also gives guidelines for construction agreements where the FIDIC forms are new in use, typically in post-communist countries. The book is full of international arbitration case law and contains around 50 case studies from all over the world written by co-authors invited to contribute.” (International Journal of Arab Arbitration, 1 October 2014)

“It is refreshing to read a book of quality that is not only relevant to the UK but is also authored by a UK clinical practitioner.” (DrugLink, 1 September 2013)

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“There has been much growth in forms of therapy to treat addiction in recent years. In this book, Frank Ryan has done a truly excellent job of demonstrating the enormous value of cognitive therapy as an effective treatment for addiction. It is a tour de force.”—Michael Eysenck, Emeritus Professor of Psychology,Royal Holloway, London

“Frank Ryan’s Cognitive Therapy for Addiction makes a unique contribution to the field of treatment for addictive disorders.  The book includes a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the latest research on cognitive-motivational principles and goes on to show how these principles can be applied to the treatment of addictive disorders.  Dr Ryan illustrates these principles through case examples drawn from his own extensive clinical practice.  He has a unique way of bringing hard science to life, showing how practitioners can apply cognitive-motivational principles in order to help real clients overcome their entrenched, maladaptive patterns of substance misuse.”—W. Miles Cox, Professor of Psychology of Addictive Behaviours, School of Psychology, Bangor University

“Frank Ryan is in a unique position to bridge the exciting new findings in research on cognitive bias modification in addiction and cognitive therapy for addiction, because he has been active as a researcher and as a clinician. He writes in an enthusiastic and clear manner about both too separate worlds and provides the highly needed integration.”—Reinout W. Wiers, Ph.D., Professor of Developmental Psychopathology, University of Amsterdam
