Embracing Diversity: Treatment and Care in Addiction Counseling, 2nd Ed.
Embracing Diversity: Treatment and Care in Addictions Counseling addresses diversity aspects to consider within the addiction counseling setting. It explores the reader’s self-awareness, knowledge, and skills regarding various populations and provides information on substance use issues, screening and assessment, and treatment recommendations.
Contributed chapters speak to the unique issues faced by people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds in relation to substance use and treatment. Moreover, the reader learns how to best meet the needs of those who have co-occurring disorders, are involved with the criminal justice system, or are economically disadvantaged. There is also material devoted to the following: adolescents, older adults, women, members of the LGBTQ community, and those who are military/veterans.
For the second edition, each chapter has been fully updated with new research to provide readers with the most accurate, timely information. The text features a new chapter dedicated to the topics of cultural humility and broaching, as well as the addition of a conclusion chapter, which highlights main points across the textbook.
Embracing Diversity prepares counselors to assist individuals who come from differing walks of life and whose backgrounds and experiences must be taken into account to optimize successful outcomes. The book is suitable for courses in addiction studies, psychology, social work, and multicultural counseling.
