Center for Psychological Studies Professors Author New Book

Linda C. Sobell, PhD, ABPP

CPS professors Linda C. Sobell, Ph.D., ABPP, and Mark B. Sobell, Ph.D., ABPP, published a new book recently, Group Therapy for Substance Use Disorders: A Motivational Cognitive-Behavioral Approach. This authoritative book presents a groundbreaking evidence-based approach to conducting therapy groups for persons with substance use disorders. The approach integrates cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, and relapse prevention techniques, while capitalizing on the power of group processes. Clinicians are provided with a detailed intervention framework and clear-cut strategies for helping clients to set and meet their own treatment goals. More than two dozen ready-to-use reproducible assessment tools, handouts, homework exercises, and session outlines are supplied in a convenient large-size format.

Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP

Group Therapy for Substance Use Disorders is specifically designed for clinical psychologists, social workers, substance abuse counselors, and other clinicians who treat clients with addiction and substance use problems.

The authors also serve as directors of NSU’s The Healthy Lifestyles Guided Self-Change Program. Healthy Lifestyles Guided Self-Change Program, a specialty outpatient program at NSU’s Psychology Services Center, offers a unique short-term, evidence-based, non-12 step alternative treatment not available elsewhere in Florida. Services are offered for people concerned about becoming healthier, losing weight, exercising more, drinking less, developing better relationships, quitting smoking, quitting gambling, stopping drug use, reducing internet use, becoming more goal-directed, and improving sleep.
