In Cognitive-Behavioral Relapse Prevention for Addictions, Dr. G. Alan Marlatt demonstrates his approach to working with clients dealing with addictions or compulsive habits such as substance abuse, gambling, or sexual addiction. Cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention helps clients through the process of relapse recovery by focusing on cognitive, behavioral, and lifestyle choices that might be changed or reinforced to help the client prevent relapse. Central to this approach is the work of identifying relapse triggers and developing coping strategies. In this session, Dr. Marlatt works with a 41-year-old woman who has been abusing alcohol for a number of years and seeks help with quitting. This DVD features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of actual case material. In cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention (CBRP), therapists utilize basic principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy in the assessment and treatment of addictive behavior problems. CBRP has been applied in the treatment of smoking, alcohol and substance abuse or dependence, compulsive gambling, deviate sexual behavior, and other behavioral problems with high relapse rates. G. Alan Marlatt, PhD, is currently professor of psychology and director of the Addictive Behaviors Research Center at the University of Washington. He received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Indiana University in 1968 and served a clinical internship at Napa State Hospital in California (1967-1968). After serving on the faculties of the University of British Columbia (1968-1969) and the University of Wisconsin (1969-1972), he joined the University of Washington faculty in the fall of 1972.
