Treatment Manual for Smoking Cessation Groups

Book description

Treatment Manual for Smoking Cessation Groups guides the reader through step-by-step instructions on how to implement treatments to help smokers give up their habit in a group environment. The manual describes how to successfully deliver group interventions through an evidence-based, modular approach designed to suit a wide range of service settings. Each module contains therapist guidelines, client handouts and worksheets, designed with the busy clinician in mind. The treatment modules are structured in two parts: part one contains the therapist guidelines explaining the rationale behind the strategies and how to deliver the treatments effectively; part two contains the client materials supporting the program and providing self-help tools. Appealing to anyone involved in the provision of smoking cessation services; this manual is an essential tool for clinical psychologists, health psychologists, addiction counselors, mental health workers, health promotion officers and smoking cessation nurses and GPs.
