Summary

The second edition of this highly successful book takes the view that the family-not just the alcoholic member-is the client. This approach is now well accepted in psychological circles. Family therapists and students will use this book to learn about substance abuse from a systemic viewpoint and chemical dependency counselors will learn about family systems thinking and theory. The thoroughly revised book has additional models of evaluation, new models of treatment, ten years of research results, and updated references.
