How to stop patients and clients smoking - guidance on treatments that work, from leading US authorities.

This volume in the series Advances in Psychotherapy – Evidence-Based Practice provides health care providers with practical and evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of nicotine and tobacco dependence.
Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death in the world, and it is the only legally available consumer product that kills people when used entirely as intended. Research over the past several decades has led to the development of a number of evidence-based treatments for nicotine and tobacco dependence that can be delivered by health care professionals in a variety of primary and specialty care settings. This book aims to increase medical, mental health, and dental practitioners’ access to empirically supported interventions for nicotine and tobacco dependence, with the hope that these methods will be incorporated into routine clinical practice.
The book is both a compact “how-to” reference for clinicians and an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education. The volume includes tables, boxed clinical pearls, and clinical vignettes, and the appendix includes clinical tools, patient handouts, and links to the top recommended websites for the download of additional patient materials.

From the Endorsements

“A handy compendium of everything a clinician needs to know to assess the degree of tobacco dependence and to decide on the appropriate treatment. Every practice should have this book.”
Steven A. Schroeder, MD, Distinguished Professor of Health and Health Care, Department of Medicine, Director, Smoking Cessation Leadership Center, University of California, San Francisco, CA

“This informative book offers state-of-the-art knowledge about tobacco cessation, detailing well-developed strategies and vignettes to aid psychologists in addressing tobacco dependence, and provides psychologists and other healthcare professionals a significant and timely guide to helping patients quit tobacco use.”
Michael C. Fiore, MD, MPH, MBA, Director, University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention, Madison, WI, Chair, US Public Health Service Panel, Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence: A Clinical Practice Guideline 2008 UPDATE

“This marvelous compendium of key information and data manages to be very current, comprehensive, and extremely clear and accessible. Of the greatest value to all clinicians who treat smokers and want to help them, makes effective tobacco dependence treatment feasible for a wide variety of clinicians (physicians, nurses, counselors).”
Timothy B. Baker, Department of Medicine, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI
