"Both novices and experienced professionals will find a clinically sound, theoretically supported, and empirically grounded model of group therapy for people struggling with addictions. Strengths of this reader-friendly treatment guide include clinical illustrations; clear and informative figures, tables, and forms; and cognitive case conceptualizations that illustrate how to apply cognitive theory to individual group members and the group as a whole. The authors do a superb job of translating theoretical and empirical knowledge into practice principles. This is a first-rate book that will be a welcome addition to the libraries of addictions professionals." - Meredith Hanson, Fordham University, New York, USA 

"This book describes what a cognitive model of addiction looks like and presents a clear rationale for an open-ended group. Clients are encouraged to discuss their challenges, with a strong focus on achievable changes that they can implement. The cognitive model guides rather than drives the discussion. This team of authors knows the field very well, and the book is well illustrated with excellent practical examples. This book has real depth. It is an admirably clear call to skilful practice." - Stephen Rollnick, Cardiff University, UK
