Alcohol misuse is becoming an increasingly significant issue for people aged 55 and over. Providing effective counselling services to this growing client group requires a unique and specialised approach. This week, the Australian Drug Foundation Online shop features Counselling older people with alcohol problems.
The book explores the influences, patterns and triggers that affect the development and progression of alcohol dependency in this age group. It also provides a detailed description of a theoretical model and therapeutic process that has proved successful in practice.
A great resource for counsellors and other healthcare professionals who encounter alcohol problems in their clinical practice, including clinical psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, and community psychiatric nurses. You can purchase this book from the ADF online shop.
