Author! Author!

I had the great honor of authoring the chapter on Alcohol Use Disorder in Conn’s Current Therapy 2022, the venerable textbook that has been through 74 (!!) annual editions. With a little luck, you should be able read it via Google Books (Psychiatric Disorders, Page 803).

I’ve been asked to return for the 2023 edition. I plan to include some important new research on non-abstinent recovery (“progress, not perfection”). I’ll also be adding a section on how to actually deliver motivational enhancement therapy (a/k/a motivational interviewing) and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) during brief sessions like office visits in primary care.

Many thanks to Rick Kellerman, M.D., for involving me in this most rewarding project! ✸
