Workbook 2 Cognitive behavioural therapy for substance use and gambling

A precise and page-to-page English translation of Werkboek 2 cognitieve gedragstherapie bij middelengebruik en gokken (individual treatment with 9 basic sessions and 7 optional sessions) containing self-monitoring registration forms, other fill-in schemes and many exercises to do at home and to discuss the following session. Themes and subjects of the sessions are also leading in the workbook. Clients are expected to work hard on the goals set. They practice between the sessions with different ways of thinking and behaviour. It is important that the clients exercise and write things down in the workbook. This maximizes the chance to reach control over their substance use or gambling. The workbook does not contain psycho-education itself but is referring to reliable sources. The therapist is supported with psycho-education in the manual and in the Addendum.
