"We have developed an evidence-based, positive, comprehensive model for treating substance use disorders. Our model, called Reinforcement-Based Treatment (RBT), differs significantly from most existing treatment programs. This book serves as the treatment manual for RBT and is the elaboration of several unpublished manuals used in clinical trials testing the efficacy of RBT. This text provides complete clinical information and tools for how to administer all RBT components as well as guidelines for how to implement the model administratively and to supervise clinicians using this approach. The techniques, tools, and clinical examples described herein are based on our many years of experience developing, refining, adapting, disseminating, and clinically delivering RBT in both research and standard practice settings. When used in conjunction with several other texts recommended throughout this book (e.g., the MI clinical manual; Miller & Rollnick, 2002), clinicians wishing to provide RBT should be able to administer it to clients who have a variety of substance use disorders. The primary intended audience for this book is clinicians working in substance abuse treatment programs and program administrators who have the authority to select and implement treatment models for their agencies. For clinicians, this manual can serve as a practical guide for how to incorporate more behavioral and motivational techniques into their own practice with substance-abusing clients. For administrators, this volume can serve as the foundation for how to implement a full RBT program involving all treatment components within an outpatient or home-based treatment setting. This book also is intended for graduate students in counseling, social work, psychology, and related fields to learn more about one of the most comprehensive and effective behavioral treatment packages available for substance abuse. This book provides a strong foundation in the latest behavioral and motivational interventions for substance use disorders, how they are delivered in real-world practice settings, and their application to specialized client populations"--Introduction.

Self Efficacy

Ideal for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses, or for professional use, the book is based on Bandura's theory that those with high self-efficacy expectancies - the belief that one can achieve what one sets out to do - are healthier, more effective, and generally more successful than those with low self-efficacy expectancies. He begins with a discussion of theory and method: what self-efficacy is and how it can be developed. Bandura then demonstrates how belief in one's capabilities affects development and psychosocial functioning during the course of life, underscoring provocative applications of this work to issues in education, health, psychopathology, athletics, business, and international affairs.
