Counseling the adolescent substance abuser: school-based intervention and prevention
More and more families are turning to schools for support, guidance, and nurturance. When it comes to substance abuse among young people, school professionals can and do make a difference. Counseling the Adolescent Substance Abuser provides social workers, guidance counselors, and student assistance counselors the information needed to offer effective counseling services and prevention programs to all adolescents. It gives an overview of the drug problem, describes how school professionals can and should successfully intervene, and shows how to address the treatment needs of chemically dependent adolescents and their families within the school setting. It covers such important topics as predicting adolescent drug use, working with the dually diagnosed adolescent, prevention, staff development, and legal issues. Chapters covering individual, group, and family counseling techniques provide the specific and practical information necessary to work with young people and their families. Case examples are used throughout the volume to illustrate key issues.
