What People are Saying About This

Brian J. Dew

Substance Use Disorders in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Clients is one of the first books to present an exhaustive, current, and relevant look into the impact of substance abuse on LGBT clients as well as clinical implications for working with members of this population and their loved ones.

Rodger L. Beatty

Sandra Anderson's book is a great resource for any social worker or clinician working with substance use disorders and the LGBT population. Her work provides a comprehensive review of contemporary assessment and substance abuse treatment research literature, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing, and how those modalities apply in working with LGBT clients. The case studies are particularly helpful, making Anderson's work a great resource for new clinicians or those new to working with LGBT clients.
