Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D.(Cermak Health Services)
Description: The book addresses the needs of dually diagnosed individuals, from both theoretical and treatment perspectives. The first edition was published in 1990.
Purpose: According to the editors, "the second edition of the book continues the emphasis on research-based, diagnostic and therapeutic practices, programs, and approaches to managing chemically dependent patients who show co-existing psychiatric disorders." These are worthy objectives and the book meets them.
Audience: "According to the editors, the book has been used as a graduate text in addiction studies, and occasionally used in undergraduate courses. The editors believe that the second edition will continue to be used as a graduate and reference text. I think it is appropriate for graduate students and practitioners. The editors and contributors are credible authorities in the field. "
Features: The book covers both theoretical and treatment considerations for dually diagnosed patients. It covers many of the typical diagnostic categories such as depression and anxiety, but also includes schizophrenia as well. There is also a nice chapter on females with dual diagnoses, which goes a long way in telling the reader how treatment must be tailored with a relational perspective in mind. The book is good because it is practical and includes the latest research findings.
Assessment: I like this book because you can apply it to your daily work with dually diagnosed individuals. I also appreciate the fact that a chapter on schizophrenia is included. The editors state that "the new edition reflects numerous developments in the field of comorbidity over the past decade." A second edition is needed because the field is constantly changing as new research is evaluated.
