Learning the Language of Addiction Counseling, Fifth Edition introduces counselors, social workers, and students to the field of addiction counseling and helps them acquire the knowledge and develop the skills needed to counsel individuals who are caught in the destructive cycle of addiction. Drawing from her years of experience working in the addiction-counseling field, Geri Miller provides an engaging, balanced overview of the major theoretical foundations and clinical best practices in the field.

Fully updated, the fifth edition offers a positive, practice-oriented counseling framework and features:

  • Accurate, timely, information about addictions in language that is easy to understand.
  • A new chapter (15) on supervision and mentoring since both supervisors/mentors and supervisees/mentees use this book in their training and licensure process.
  • Counseling information about working with addicts which is based on current information and research regarding influences (Integrated Health Care Movement), assessment (new DSM V coding based on the ICD-10), new assessment instruments and an expanded section on more frequently used instruments (such as the SBIRT) and treatments
  • Covers new medications, behavioral therapies, mindfulness therapy, the new framework of Motivational Interviewing, mutual-help groups, and emerging technologies.
  • Exposure to "grassroots language/culture" of 12 step groups that may not be familiar to clinicians, (in the self-help group chapter (Chapter 8)
  • Reader-friendly features including case studies, interactive exercises, end-of-chapter questions, and other resources that facilitate the integration of knowledge into practice
  • To provide updated and expanded resources of readings, videos, and websites at the end of each chapter to be used in the classroom or clinical setting.
