Inform and improve your practice with this comprehensive resource on cannabis use and abuse

A Practitioner's Guide to Cannabis expertly cuts through the political and cultural noise surrounding cannabis use and provides a relevant, timely, and agnostic analysis of cannabis use and abuse.

Incisive and insightful, this book assists behavioral health practitioners to increase their skills in screening, assessment, and intervention while helping them to adopt evidence-based practices. Health care providers will come to rely on this comprehensive resource to understand the risks of cannabis use and to provide a set of intervention strategies effective in a variety of settings.

The book covers topics crucial for understanding the work of behavioral health and health practitioners dealing with cannabis issues, including:
• the complexities of cannabis science
• our cultural interpretations of the use of cannabis
• the risks involved with cannabis use
• effective interventions
• patients' expressions of their own "biopsychosocial" experience

The book is perfect for social workers, psychologists, professional counselors, alcohol/drug counselors, and providers of health care, including physicians, nurses, and physician's assistants.
