Description : In the substance abuse and addiction treatment realm, males outnumber females two to one. While gender-issues are seen as a key element of women’s treatment, the acknowledgement that males are "gendered beings" who have lived lives full of male-specific developmental challenges is often overlooked. This text takes a developmental lifespan approach to examine the neurobiological and psychosocial factors associated with substance use disorders for males, specifically in relation to emotional growth and awareness, and how these areas, in turn, affect the development of healthy relationships. Theoretical concepts from the field of interpersonal neurobiology, the psychology of boys and men, and the substance abuse and addiction literature are interwoven with practical clinical examples to help elucidate how the notion of fostering emotional development can strengthen the treatment and recovery processes with boys and men. Relevant case examples are included that illustrate work with males of all ages and address a variety of factors associated with culture, ethnicity, race, religion, and sexual orientation. Mental health practitioners will find this a valuable guide to understanding male development in relation to substance use and abuse and providing more comprehensive, gender-responsive counseling and assessment practices.

Description : The use of techniques and interventions for play therapy during the supervision process for graduate and post-graduate counselors provides a host of benefits for the counseling student, post-graduate intern, and supervisor. The counselor in training is able to experientially integrate theory with practice through the use of different modalities that provide reflection and insight into their work with clients. Additionally, the use of techniques and interventions for play therapy allows a secure and strong supervisory relationship, which allows the counselor in training to explore personal and professional goals; verbalize and conceptualize client issues, goals, and effective interventions; and develop counselor-client relationships that allow the client to progress during the therapeutic process. However, play therapy techniques and interventions are not often incorporated into the supervision process unless the clinician is a registered play therapist being supervised by a registered play therapist supervisor.

Description : Clients who have multiple addictions and disorders are more difficult to engage and treat than clients with a single disorder. Many of the current systems are ill-equipped to address the myriad challenges of these clients—their relapse and recidivism rates are higher, and many of these clients tend to slip through the cracks, often going back and forth among addictions treatment, psychiatric and medical hospitalizations, and incarceration. Too many difficult-to-reach clients are at risk for relapse because their practitioners lack effective, innovative strategies for this unique client base who remain part of a revolving-door syndrome. Now, Certified Alcohol and Drug Addictions Counselor Mark Sanders, LCSW, offers specific strategies to assist therapists and counselors who work with difficult and at-risk populations, including those with: multiple addictions co-occurring disorders adolescents; rural methamphetamine users antisocial personality disorder, criminality, and addiction trauma or grief and chemical dependency history of chronic relapse and recidivism Slipping Through the Cracks is a encyclopedic handbook to specific traits of the difficult-to-reach client, as well as a concise guidebook to effective strategies that will be useful to anyone working with clients in private practice or in treatment programs who have both mental health and substance abuse issues.
