Hidden Addictions

Marilyn Freimuth's book has been published. I'm ordering it today.

Hidden Addictions: Assessment Practices for Psychotherapists, Counselors, and Health Care Providers

Hidden Addictions: Assessment Practices for Psychotherapists, Counselors, and Health Care Providers

Impressive. She got a jacket quote from Marlatt:

This book provides a wealth of information to help therapists and other health professionals recognize and assess for possible 'hidden addictions' among their patients and clients. Even when patients seek treatment for other problems, many have co-occurring problems with alcohol, other substances, or 'process addictions' such as excessive shopping, gambling, or cybersex. Therapists will benefit from the author's description of multiple assessment strategies designed to uncover addictive behavior patterns that will facilitate treatment planning. I highly recommend this valuable resource for all therapists and clinical students in training.
