The purpose of this book is to help people overcome addictions to intoxicants and cope with life's stresses which make up the substance abuse counselor's core mission. Counselors start by evaluating an addicted person's physical and mental behaviors, which is the first step in writing an appropriate treatment plan. Depending on the complexity of the problem, a counselor may call in other professionals, such as psychiatrists and social workers. Job prospects are considered greater than average because of a growth in court-ordered referrals to treatment programs. Addiction is an irresistible urge to perform an irrational act and compulsion to dependence. There are 4.2 million pornographic websites, 68 million search engine requests, 42.7 percent of Internet users viewing pornography, and 100,000 websites of pornography. Religious and spiritual features buffer individuals from addictive and risky behaviors. This suggests that religiosity may play a role in beliefs about and the use of pornography. This book will help counselors and experts in the field of Christian counseling education and the interactions they have with clients. Simultaneously, there is certainly room for improvement in the training and preparation of counselors. The purpose of this book is to introduce the topic of training satisfaction, attitude toward pornography, addiction counseling self-efficacy, and the comfort of counselors in discussing sexual issues with clients, particularly Internet pornography.

They are written in such a manner that Dr. Perkinson is your mentor and is conversing with you, sharing with you his vast area of expertise and knowledge about recovery.

Patients have reported reduced levels of stress from having their assignments organized in this format. It is a challenge for the pathological gambler to slow down and learn in early recovery." --Sue Van Doren, Nationally Certified Gambling Counselor "I have been working with compulsive gamblers and their family members for 12 years and find this work extremely rewarding and challenging. I have been utilizing Dr. Perkinson's workbooks for 10 years and have found them to be some of the most useful tools in helping addicts and gamblers identify the many ways that addiction has impacted their lives. Our clients benefit from the straightforward approach of the workbooks and the clear instructions of how to begin incorporating a 12-step recovery program into their lives. I highly recommend Dr Perkinson's workbooks." --Lisa Vig, Licensed Addiction Counselor and Nationally Certified Gambling Counselor. Gamblers Choice, Fargo, North Dakota "I have been in the chemical dependency field for over 28 years. I have worked as a counselor, clinical supervisor and executive director in a number of treatment centers. These are the best exercises for alcoholics, drug addicts and problem gamblers that I have ever seen. I have used them for years and patients find them easy to understand. The material covers everything an addict needs to know to enter a stable recovery. I highly recommend these patient handbooks. Patients love them and they make the counselor's job easy. The book makes the job easy as all you will need to help your patient is in one place." --Bob Bogue, CCSII, CCDC III, Clinical Supervisor "Dr. Perkinson does and excellent job of bringing together and individualizing 12 step treatment for addicts and gamblers including identifying character defects and relapse prevention. Comments from patients include, 'it has opened my eyes to my gambling and behaviors associated with it' and 'I feel it is easy to work and very self explanatory.'" --Ron Scherr, CCDC II, Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor, Avera St. Lukes, Worthmore Treatment Center

The social determinants of mental health involve the economic, social, and political conditions into which one is born that influence a person's mental health - and, in particular, that affect the likelihood a person raised in deficient or dangerous conditions often associated with poverty will develop persistent mental health challenges throughout his or her life. To explore how health professions education and practice organizations and programs are currently addressing social determinants that contribute to mental health disparities across the lifespan, the Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a workshop in Washington, DC on November 14-15, 2019. This publication summarizes the presentation and discussion of the workshop.

In the substance abuse and addiction treatment realm, males outnumber females two to one. While gender-issues are seen as a key element of women’s treatment, the acknowledgement that males are "gendered beings" who have lived lives full of male-specific developmental challenges is often overlooked. This text takes a developmental lifespan approach to examine the neurobiological and psychosocial factors associated with substance use disorders for males, specifically in relation to emotional growth and awareness, and how these areas, in turn, affect the development of healthy relationships. Theoretical concepts from the field of interpersonal neurobiology, the psychology of boys and men, and the substance abuse and addiction literature are interwoven with practical clinical examples to help elucidate how the notion of fostering emotional development can strengthen the treatment and recovery processes with boys and men. Relevant case examples are included that illustrate work with males of all ages and address a variety of factors associated with culture, ethnicity, race, religion, and sexual orientation. Mental health practitioners will find this a valuable guide to understanding male development in relation to substance use and abuse and providing more comprehensive, gender-responsive counseling and assessment practices.
