The long awaited Second Edition of Criminal Conduct and Substance Abuse Treatment, Provider's Guide is finally here. Now treatment providers and substance abuse counselors can find a wealth of information on how to implement the Strategies for Self Improvement and Change (SSC) curriculum efficiently and effectively. Although the Second Edition workbook can be used alone, the Second Edition Provider's Guide was written to build upon the foundation of the First Edition and provide enhanced information and adjunct exercises to supplement session delivery. It was also designed to help providers realize the essential traits and skills necessary to help ensure client success. The Provider's Guide is divided into three critical sections. The first section presents the core strategies upon which the SSC curriculum is built. This includes a conceptual framework which is essentially the thread of the program. Chapters 2-6 provide the foundational strategies of the curriculum, including: developing a therapeutic relationship through motivational enhancement; essential traits of providers; emphasis of the counselor as educator; a presentation of the phases of learning and stages of change; an introduction to the cognitive-behavioral approach; and finally a discussion of preventing relapse and recidivism - two major treatment goals. Section II provides the specific methods, procedures, and skills for the implementation and delivery of the SSC treatment curriculum. This includes a chapter on the assessment protocol, which is critical in order to accurately assess the issues, problems and vulnerabilities of the client. Chapter 7 outlines the operational procedures, such as the essential skills of the provider and guidelines for reentry and the aftercare plan. Finally, Section III provides guidelines for the delivery of the SSC modules and the individual treatment sessions as well as the phase closure sessions. It also provides adjunct informat
