Overview

Treating Patients With Alcohol and Other Drug Problems: An Integrated Approach points out ways that therapists can deduce whether a client might be abusing drugs.

Included in the volume are numerous case examples, a list of resources, and an overview of the treatment community (both self-help and professional), which describes the basic assumptions and operating principles of treatment modalities in an effort to minimize the miscommunication that can occur when professionals from different "cultures" attempt to collaborate on patient care.

Incl. profiles of Dorothea Dix/John Dewey/William Stern/ Robert M. Yerkes/Harry Hollingworth/James J. Gibson/etc.
