In an accessible writing style, Fisher and Harrison’s Substance Abuse: Information for School Counselors, Social Workers, Therapists and Counselors presents succinct, practical coverage of alcohol and other drug prevention, treatment, and recovery for generalist students, prospective mental health professionals, and allied professionals. It includes basic information on substances of abuse and focuses on clinically relevant knowledge on such topics as cultural competence, co-occurring disorders, other behavioral addictions, children and families, and ethics and confidentiality. Each chapter includes clinical application cases and questions for further discussion. The new edition inclues a new chapter on “Co-Occurring Disorders and Other Special Populations,” new information on cultural competencies and intervening with special populations such as the elderly and LGBTQQI, and new information on risk factors for alcohol and other drugs for culturally and ethnically diverse populations.
