about

It is well known that alcohol abuse can have a devastating effect on a person's entire life, from work to social life to family relationships. The cycle of alcohol abuse is especially damaging when the individual is in a romantic relationship. When an individual in a relationship struggleswith alcohol dependence, both partners suffer and the nature of the relationship can become stressful, dysfunctional, and sometimes violent. Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) has been proven to be an extremely effective method of treating alcohol abuse problems. Designed to be used in conjunctionwith formal therapy, this Workbook provides couples with all the materials they need to work with their therapist in treatment. It includes, a treatment contract for both partners to sign, forms for monitoring progress and recording drinking episodes, problem-solving and cognitive restructuringexercises, and a relapse prevention plan.
