2 Volume DVD Set
by Stephanie Brown, PhD
This video set that shows clinicians of all orientations how to provide effective treatment for alcoholics, without having to choose between a 12-step versus psychotherapeutic approach!
Volume I: Developmental Model in Action
Finally, a video that shows clinicians of all orientations how to provide effective treatment for alcoholics, without having to choose between a 12-step versus psychotherapeutic approach! Dr. Brown demonstrates her Developmental Model in the treatment of "Ted," a forty-eight year old manager, who initially denies that his drinking is related to problems at home and on-the-job. While skillfully fostering the therapeutic alliance, Dr. Brown gently but persistently brings alcohol into the focus of the treatment. This video follows the course of treatment through the four stages of the Developmental Model: Drinking, Transition, Early Recovery, and Ongoing Recovery. In a dramatic reenactment of key moments in seven outpatient sessions over the course of five years, we see Dr. Brown address the multitude of challenges inherent in the treatment of alcoholics.
By watching this video, you’ll learn how to:
Assess for appropriate treatment modality
Work effectively with denial and resistance
Modify your technique to the needs of each developmental stage
Integrate Alcoholics Anonymous into the treatment
Deal with relapses, and other complications and setbacks
Psychotherapists and chemical dependency counselors alike will find a wellspring of material in this program to enhance their existing skills in working with this difficult population.
Volume II: A Live Workshop
The Developmental Model in Theory: A Live Workshop will help you gain an in-depth understanding of the critical phases you must lead your alcoholic clients through in their recovery.
In Volume 2 of this highly acclaimed video series, Dr. Brown presents her groundbreaking research that led to the Developmental Model, which emphasizes that sobriety is the mid-point, not the end-point in the full recovery of any alcoholic. She then leads viewers step by step through the four phases of alcoholism recovery: Drinking, Transition, Early Recovery, Ongoing Recovery, detailing the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional characteristics of the alcoholic at each stage. She defines key tasks that face the therapist and client during each phase, as well as challenges for mental health practitioners and substance abuse professionals in fulfilling these tasks.
