In this newly revised edition, Philip J. Flores, a highly regarded expert in the treatment of alcoholism and in group psychotherapy, provides you with proven strategies for defeating alcohol and drug addiction through group psychotherapy.

You'll examine the constructive benefits of group therapy to chemically dependent individuals--opportunities to share and identify with others who are going through similar problems, to understand their own attitudes about addiction by confronting similar attitudes in others, and to learn to communicate their needs and feelings more directly.Group Psychotherapy with Addicted Populations covers the key areas of group psychotherapy for chemically dependent persons including:
