Synopsis

Work more effectively with DWI offenders! This valuable book provides current information on the psychological, social-demographic, and psychiatric characteristics of DWI offenders. It also will provide you with up-to-date assessment strategies that can be employed with offenders, who characteristically are resistant to such assessment. Until now, books written on this subject have focused purely on research that has been done with offenders. This book, however, provides both theoretical and applied strategies for working with this very difficult population in clinical/treatment settings. Assessment and Treatment of the DWI Offender provides practical treatment approaches such that will help you manage client resistance and incorporate family members and significant others into the treatment process to more effectively treat offenders.

Assessment and Treatment of the DWI Offender examines: * the important variables that separate DWI offenders from alcoholics in general, as well as the "normal" population * patterns of drinking behavior among offenders * the magnitude of the DWI problem in the United States * the history of the DWI countermeasures movement * prevention and public education organizations such as SADD, MADD, the Partners in Progress program, the College Binge Drinking Initiative, and more * enforcement techniques like breath testing, standardized field sobriety tests, on-site drug detection devices, etc. * problems with the tools and techniques that are currently being used to address this issue * interviewing techniques that work with DWI offenders * more!Intended primarily for counselors, social workers, psychologists, and other professionals who work with DWI offenders and packed with helpful and easy-to-read statistical charts and tables, this book is also essential for graduate students in psychology, social work, chemical dependency, or any of the helping professions.
