It is well known that alcohol abuse can have a devastating effect on a person's entire life, from work to social life to family relationships. The cycle of alcohol abuse is especially damaging when the individual is in a romantic relationship. When an individual in a relationship struggleswith alcohol dependence, both partners suffer and the nature of the relationship can become stressful, dysfunctional, and sometimes violent. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) has been proven to be an extremely effective method of treating alcohol abuse problems. Since both members of a couple areso affected when one partner abuses alcohol, this CBT based program is designed to treat them together, to help the drinker overcome his or her problem and the partner understand how he or she can become an agent of positive change. Often, a partner can be an unwitting trigger of alcohol abuse bymisreading or miscommunicating situations. This program teaches the non-drinker how to avoid such situations and be a supportive part of the recovery effort.Partners learn to help motivate the drinker to stop, to recognise potential triggers and danger situations, and to prevent relapse once thetreatment has ended successfully. This Therapist Guide outlines a 12-week program, providing session outlines and lists of materials needed to facilitate the treatment. Sessions focus on stimulus control, problem-solving, communication, and building motivation.

Overcoming Impulse Control Problems is written by researchers with years of experience studying the psychology of impulse control disorders. This book represents the treatment they have found to be the most effective at controlling urges to gamble, steal, set fires, and over-spend. It will also help you to better understand the true nature of impulse control problems, and will help to prevent future problems. Intended for use in conjunction with supervised therapy, this workbook includes various self-assessmnets and exercises designed to help you realize the truth behind your actions, and to reach the ultimate goal of changing your impulsive behaviors. This workbook and the corresponding therapist guide form a complete treatment package that will help you overcome your impulsive behaviors and learn skills that are useful for a lifetime.

It is estimated that one in ten U.S. adults suffers from chronic insomnia. If left untreated, chronic insomnia reduces quality of life and increases risk for psychiatric and medical disease, especially depression and anxiety. There are two forms of insomnia: secondary insomnia, in which it is comorbid with another condition such as psychiatric disorders, chronic pain conditions, or cardiopulmonary disorders, and primary insomnia, which does not coexist with any other disorder. This treatment program uses cognitive-behavioral therapy methods to correct poor sleep habits. CBT has been proven in multiple studies to improve sleep hygiene by reducing time spent in bed before sleep onset, reducing time spent awake after first sleep onset, and increasing the quality and efficiency of sleep. Developed by the authors, this evidence based treatment can be used for both primary and secondary insomnia sufferers. Patients are first given information about healthy sleep and the reasons for improving sleep habits, then a behavioral program is developed to address that patient's specific sleep problems. Use of sleep logs, assessment forms, and other homework (all provided in the corresponding workbook) allows client and therapist to work together to develop an effective sleep regimen tailored specifically for each client. Finally, several sessions are dedicated to increasing compliance and problem-solving.

Terrible events are very hard to deal with. Those who go through a catastrophic life experience, such as a car accident, assault, long-term abuse, an illness or bereavement, often feel permanently changed by the impact of what has happened. They become numb and shut off from those around them, or grief or guilt may constantly weigh them down. Memories of horrifying scenes may intrude unexpectedly during waking hours while sleep may be disturbed by vivid, unpleasant dreams. These two practical guides on trauma and how to cope with its aftermath are written by internationally recognise trauma experts. Overcoming Traumatic Stress - Claudia Herbert & Ann Wetmore Based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), this self-help guide offers a step-by-step programme to help you to understand your traumatic experience and how it's affecting you, and to start to rebuild your life. Traumatic stress responses, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) result from a person's coping mechanisms having been completely overwhelmed by a terrible experience. 'Flashbacks' may be so severe that sufferers may feel that they are losing their sanity and subsequently become ever more isolated in their distress. To overcome the effects of trauma it is necessary to change those reactions and begin to see events in a different light. This book demonstrates, with practical advice and tested exercises, how to find new, effective ways of coping with, and finally overcoming traumatic stress. To Hell and Back - John Marzillier In this innovative and engaging book, world-renowned psychologist John Marzillier dovetails first-hand accounts from trauma sufferers with over 40 years of clinical practice to provide an honest, human description of how trauma affects us at the time and also after the event. Whether discussing accounts of terrorist bombings, natural disasters, road accidents or physical attacks, he looks at what these experiences do to us and offers practical and consoling advice - for both sufferers and their loved ones - on coping with the experience and developing resilience for the future.

Recent research in the treatment of alcoholism has shown that the involvement of a spouse or partner improves outcome for the client. This hands-on guide presents a time-limited, cognitive-behavioral treatment in the context of couple therapy. The volume demonstrates how to engage the alcoholic's partner as an active participant in the treatment process. Using this state-of-the-art approach, the practitioner can respond to the needs of both the alcoholic and the partner, which may motivate the couple to remain in treatment and learn the skills they need to overcome the many struggles inherent in a relationship affected by alcoholism. The treatment described in this book is based on a 20-session model, empirically tested in a research program sponsored by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The book is organized so that each chapter and the suggested interventions may stand alone or be integrated with a variety of therapeutic approaches. Five phases of treatment are described in step-by-step detail, with recommendations for the number of sessions to be spent on each phase. Following a logical sequence, simple skills (e.g., self-monitoring) are presented first, and more difficult tasks, which build upon previously learned skills (e.g., cognitive and behavioral coping strategies and drink/target behavior refusal training), are introduced in the middle phases of treatment. The couple will be more prepared at this stage to engage in increasingly complex interactions and to team up to reinforce each other's positive behavior changes, including abstinence. The final phases of treatment introduce specific interventions designed to prevent relapse, establish nondrinking social support networks, and address other alcohol-related life problems, such as poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Illustrative case examples throughout help bring the process to life, and a wealth of reproducible handouts in the form of exercises, charts, and sample dialogue are featured in the book's appendices.

This is an introductory text on psychological theories and psychotherapy that approaches the topic from a multidisciplinary perspective. Written for psychiatry residents, but of notable relevance to other students and practitioners in medical and mental health fields, this book lays out a specific sequence for learning psychotherapy that emphasizes the fundamental importance of acquiring an appropriate foundational knowledge base in addition to learning the specific techniques of psychotherapies. Beyond emphasizing the details of major treatment models as well as the theory and research findings that inform the field of psychotherapy in general, a specific learning sequence is laid out that will guide the reader toward developing beginning competence as a psychotherapist. Psychoanalytic theory and behavior theory are each presented in historical context, with explanations and clear distinctions made among categories of each. These include classical psychoanalytic theory, ego psychology, object relations, the interpersonal school, intersubjective and relational approaches, learning theory (including classical and operant conditioning), cognitive theory, and mindfulness-based approaches.
