Increasingly, social policy now demands evidence-based practice, putting ever greater pressure on professionals from all disciplines to grasp the core ideas and skills drawn from research findings. But this research is often too arid and abstract to overlay upon the life of the individual sat before us, and can make the lay person feel even more under skilled. This book bridges this chasm, bringing together a wide range of proven skills in supporting people through change in an open and accessible way. It:
invites you to re-consider your own experiences so as to illuminate the key ideas, skills and techniques in addiction work
lucidly explains the latest findings in effective practice
illustrates them with case examples
provides optional self-reflective exercises and activities to aid learning and training
Empathy for the Devil will give anyone working with people whose lives are affected by drugs and/or alcohol new ideas and perspectives to address old and intractable problems.
