Addiction Counselling: Content and Process

Author(s): Ali Marsh and Ali Dale


For many counsellors and therapists, clients who have alcohol and other drug problems present a particular challenge. High drop-out rates, irregular attendance at sessions, on-going drug use, suicidal ideation and attempts, difficulties forming a solid therapeutic relationship, slow progress, and co-occurring psychological disorders, are just some of the difficulties counsellors face. For counsellors who deal with these and other issues with addiction clients, this book will provide a wealth of information and helpful strategies. Both the content of addiction counselling and the process of working with addiction clients are focused on. Content includes basic addiction counselling strategies, such as motivational interviewing and relapse prevention, and strategies for more general issues, such as suicide prevention, emotion management, anger management, assertion, and grief. The process section examines the interaction between client and counsellor, showing how early experiences shape clients
