About this product
- DescriptionAlcohol and drug abuse are among the gravest and most widespread problems clinical psychologists must treat. Though the problems seem perennial, diagsis and treatment have been steadily refined, allowing professional psychologists to assess more variables and to offer more effective help. This volume surveys the latest advances in research and therapy and reconsiders standard treatment practices. The contributors to Alcohol and Addictive Behavior, all of them established professionals, focus on such key issues as the effect of addiction on the family, the influence of genetics, and the source of alcohol and drug craving. Much of what they report is based on new and ongoing research that should have considerable influence in the future treatment of alcohol and substance abusers. The contents include: What Do Behavioral Scientists Kw-and What Can They Do-about Alcoholism by Peter E. Nathan, Rutgers University; The Four Alcoholisms: A Developmental Account of the Etiological Process by Robert A. Zucker, Michigan State University; Antecedents and Consequences of Drinking and Drinking Patterns in Women: Patterns from a U.S. National Survey by Richard W. Wilsnack, University of North Dakota School of Medicine; Alcoholism: A Family Interaction Perspective by Theodore Jacob, University of Pittsburgh, Biological Markers for Alcoholism: A Vulnerability Model Conceptualization by Shirley Y. Hill, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; and The Motivation to Use Drugs: A Psychobiological Analysis of Urges by Timothy B. Baker, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
