Managing Negative Emotions Without Drinking is the ideal companion to Emotion Regulation Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorders. Each of the 12 individual weekly treatment sessions presents scientifically tested strategies for managing emotions without alcohol, including mindfulness practices, direct experiencing of emotion, and cognitive and behavioral skills to manage high-risk drinking situations and prevent relapse to alcohol use. The step-by-step exercises, user-friendly worksheets, and in-session and between-session skill practice help clients gain a basic understanding of the role that emotions play in harmful alcohol use and assist them in developing the skills needed to manage these emotions and cravings without alcohol.
