Reviews

CBT for Problem Drinking provides a sound introduction to the theory and practice of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and is presented in such a way as to be of practical use to those wishing to enhance their knowledge and skills in this area. There is much here which will also be of interest to those attempting to resolve their own difficulties with alcohol, including a wealth of suggested exercises and resource material.
Bill Reading, Addictions Psychotherapist, Canterbury, UK

This is a remarkably comprehensive and authoritative guide for practitioners wishing to engage problem drinkers in behaviour change. Dr Spada not only provides the extensive evidence base for CBT in relation to alcohol problems, he also elucidates with ample examples of therapeutic practice, bringing the art of the practitioner to the fore.
Don Shenker, Chief Executive of Alcohol Concern, UK
