Noted expert Jack Klott presents new and innovative approaches to help identify, assess, and treat high-risk clients who suffer from challenging co-occurring disorders. He shows how to apply the basic principles of treatment, how to recognize the essential aspects of a treatment plan, and illustrates how Motivational Enhancement Therapy can be an effective treatment strategy. With an emphasis on "treating people, not behaviors," Jack addresses stage wise interventions, the "how to" and benefits of motivational interviewing, and other treatment considerations to take into account. The importance of identifying suicide risk factors and what these are is a primary focus of the book.
