Every person comes to know and understand their life from their own perspective. As a result, it is often difficult and sometimes unbelievable to realize that others, whom one may or may not know, might also experience daily life in a vastly different way. Explorations in Diversity offers readers the opportunity to step into the lives of diverse others and experience their lives through their eyes. Some readers may find themselves struggling to comprehend or even believe the experiences this text's authors share, or where they fit within each narrative. However, each account in this text ultimately aims to open minds, hearts, and mouths in ways that push each of us toward a better understanding of our own privileged statuses so that we can use who we are, what we say, and what we do to make our society more accepting and inclusive of all our diverse representations.

What is the role of self-help groups in addiction counseling? How are other disorders and behavioral problems aggravated and influenced by addictions? How can one help another through the treatment process? The answers to these questions preclude a basic understanding of the vocabulary surrounding addictions and addiction counseling -- a vocabulary provided by this informative, introductory resource. This book is an excellent, overall summary of addictions counseling. Its primary strength is its practical, hands-on approach which allows readers to learn first-hand about how to help people with addictions. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to bridge the gap between the academic side and the practical side to this type of counseling. Providing the current and pertinent information on addictions counseling, this book includes separate chapters on self-help groups, assessment instruments, brief therapy, and dual disorders. Addiction counselors, psychologists, health professionals, behavioral therapists, friends and family members of those struggling with addiction problems, and anyone else who wants to learn more about addictions counseling.

Substance abuse is one of the most frequent and serious problems encountered by human service workers, criminal justice professionals, and clinicians. Unfortunately, many professionals in these fields receive little, if any, formal training about this problem. Our planned encyclopedia presents state-of-the-art research and evidence-based applications in A-to-Z format. Rather than create a compendium of specific drugs and drug effects, for which there are any number of fine titles already available, the focus will be upon practical knowledge and skills for pre-service and in-service human service professionals, including substance abuse counselors and prevention specialists.
