Seeking safety A treatment Manual for PTSD and Substance Abuse (The Guilford Substance Abuse Series)
- The Guilford Press
- Minimum Purchase:
- 1 unit
The first empirically studied integrated treatment method created exclusively for co-occurring PTSD and substance misuse is presented in this guidebook. The most urgent therapeutic requirement for people with this common and difficult-to-treat dual diagnosis is to establish safety—to work toward quitting drugs, ending harmful relationships, and gaining control over extreme symptoms like dissociation and self-harm. The guidebook is structured into 25 parts or subjects that cover a wide range of cognitive, behavioural, and interpersonal domains. Each topic provides extremely practical methods and procedures for involving patients in treatment, teaching "safe coping skills" that apply to both conditions, and restoring lost principles such as respect, caring, protection, and healing.
