Overview

Counsellors and therapists sometimes work with clients who present particular issues, in which the therapist has no specialist training. Issues may highlight the need for specialist advice, so that they can continue to work with the client, or can decide if specialist help is required.This book is written in a question and answer style, with several types of reader in mind. It is intended primarily as a source of help for established counsellors and therapists, who wish to enhance their capacity to offer help to those affected by problematic drug-use. It will be of help also to those studying to become counsellors and therapists. It will also appeal to those who may wish to enquire further into the process of counselling those who use drugs, whatever the reasons for their curiosity. Typical questions about alcohol and drug use are answered by a series of experts in the field.
