Anger Management-Based Alcohol Treatment: An Integrated Therapy for Anger and Alcohol Use Disorder provides mental health professionals with specialized clinical techniques and strategies for assessing and treating comorbid alcoholism and anger emotions. This hands-on guide empowers clinicians in teaching anger management skills to drinkers with alcohol use disorder, helping these patients learn cognitive and relaxation skills that reduce anger and disconnect the anger-alcohol linkage. Case studies and vignettes based on clinical experience are laced throughout the book, along with therapeutic techniques that can be put into immediate practice.

The book also features effective ways clients can self-monitor their craving and anger emotions, ethnicity considerations in anger and drinking, and how to adapt anger management therapy to group therapy settings.
