In Counseling Addicted Families, Gerald A. Juhnke and William Bryce Hagedorn recognize that even those treatment providers who understand the importance of the familial context of addiction are often stymied by the variety of family treatment theories and their often imperfect fit for cases of addiction. In this book, Juhnke and Hagedorn provide a truly integrated model for assessment and treatment. Based upon the authorsa combined twenty-three years of experience in clinical and treatment supervision, the Integrated Family Addictions Model consists of six progressive treatment tiers which organize the relevant family treatment theories into a graduated and coherent sequence, beginning with the briefest and least costly forms of therapy.In very broad terms, PaulaAls partner, Mark, would have likely fulfilled a Diagnostic and Statistic Manual diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder. ...
