Summary: Filling a crucial need, this book presents an empirically based therapy program for the family members or partners of treatment-refusing substance abusers. Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) teaches concerned significant others (CSOs) how to change their own behavior toward their loved ones in order to reward sober behavior, discourage substance use, and ultimately to get the substance abusers into treatment. In the process, CSOs also derive therapeutic benefits themselves. Written in an accessible style, the book provides step-by-step instructions for implementing an array of well-tested motivational, behavioral, and cognitive interventions. Illustrative case examples, reproducible client materials, and many hands-on clinical pointers bring the approach to life for therapists and counselors from a range of backgrounds, regardless of addiction treatment experience.
