Couple and Family Therapy of Addiction
Jerome David Levin

Synopsis

For the benefit of family therapists who want to learn more about addiction, Dr. Levin reviews its psychological, psychodynamic, biological, pharmacological, and systemic concomitants; for those individual therapists-dynamic, cognitive, and behavioral-who want to learn more about systems approaches in order to draw on a new repertoire, he introduces and distinguishes among the schools of family therapy. Dr. Levin uses alcoholism as a model addiction to illustrate, in imaginative clinical reconstructions, how theory, research, technique, and flying by the proverbial seat of the professional pants can integrate into a therapeutic style to help substance abusers and their partners and families.
