Assessing Alcohol Problems: A Guide for Clinicians and Researchers
Second Edition, 2003

This volume is a valuable resource for clinicians and researchers concerned with assessing patients' alcohol problems using psychometric instruments. Subject matter experts review domains of assessment-different stages of treatment such as screening, diagnosis, planning, treatment, and outcome-that require different types of instruments, and they describe issues relevant to each area. An update of the 1996 Assessing Alcohol Problems: A Guide for Clinicians and Researchers, this second edition presents in one convenient location, samples of more than 70 assessment instruments, along with fact sheets, an at-a-glance "Quick Reference Instrument Guide," and tables within each chapter comparing instruments used in each domain of treatment. Assessing Alcohol Problems is loose-leaf bound to make page replacement and updating easier.
