Couple and Family Therapy of Addiction
By

Rating
This is a comprehensive clinical resource for addiction counselors who want to learn about the psychological components of the problem, for individual therapists - dynamic, cognitive, and behavioral - who want to understand systems approaches in order to draw on a broader repertoire of useful interventions, and for couple and family therapists who want to learn more about the intrapsychic, biological, and pharmacological aspects of addiction. Dr. Jerome D. Levin takes the reader down the parallel paths of addiction treatment and individual and family therapy until they meet on the bridge of actual clinical practice. Practitioner, professor, prolific author, and respected authority in the field, Dr. Levin uses approaches to the treatment of alcoholism as a model for illustrating how theory, research, technique, and flying by the seat of the professional pants can integrate into a therapeutic style to help substance abusers and their partners and families.

Reviews

Jerome Levin is impressive for his breadth of knowledge and his clarity of expression. This book is at once up-to-the-minute and respectful to the legacy of psychotherapy. It will serve well as a text for beginners, yet it contains enough nuggets of special insight to allow it to sit comfortably on the shelf of experienced practitioners. -- Peter D. Kramer, M.D. Blending erudition, clinical intuition, and common sense, Dr. Levin presents an original formulation of family therapy theory and technique specifically tailored to deal with the unique problems of the addicted family. This is an achievement of the first order, a gift to a field in need of new approaches. -- David E. Scharff, M.D., International Psychotherapy Institute and the IPA Committee on Family and Couple Psychoanalysis
