Praise for Group Psychotherapy with Adult Children of Alcoholics: Treatment Techniques and Countertransference Considerations…


"This book provides a wealth of practical material for therapists conducting long-term psychodynamic group therapy with substance abusers, adult children of alcoholics, and other family members. I found the chapters on overcoming resistances or 'road blocks' in the group particularly helpful. Regardless of theoretical orientation, readers will benefit from the author's considerable clinical experience in conducting group therapy with this client population."
--G. Alan Marlatt, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Director of The Addictive Behaviors Research Center, University of Washington
