Alcohol problems in adolescents and young adults : epidemiology, neurobiology, prevention, and treatment by Marc Galanter( Book )

56 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcohol is the substance most frequently used by youth. According to 2002 data from Monitoring the Future (MTF), a nationally representative survey of youth, 78 per cent of 12th graders, 67 per cent of 10th graders and 47 per cent of 8th graders reported consuming alcohol in their lives. Youth who drink may experience a range of adverse short and long-term consequences including academic problems such as lower grades or school failure, social problems, physical problems such as hangovers or medical illnesses, unwanted or unintended sexual activity, physical and sexual assault, memory problems, increased risk for suicide and homicide, alcohol-related car crashes and death from alcohol poisoning. Clearly, drinking by young people and its consequences presents a significant public health problem which must command attention. This volume of Recent Developments in Alcoholism focusing on alcohol consumption by adolescents and young adults is therefore extremely timely
Spirituality and the healthy mind : science, therapy, and the need for personal meaning by Marc Galanter( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can the spiritual and the professional, two perspectives that seem different, be reconciled? This book is designed to provide an answer to that question. It draws on recent findings in psychology, neuroscience, and innovative therapies to understand how people express their spiritual needs. It then shows how the mentally ill, substance abusers, and people troubled by a sense that something is missing in their lives can be helped by developing a sense of personal meaning, while still benefiting from contemporary therapy and medications. Finally, it examines shortcomings in both the biomedical and spiritually-oriented approaches."--Jacket

This is also the first approach to the treatment of substance abuse that integrates individual psychotherapy with support from family and friends.

Dr. Galanter defines how treatment is implemented and then illustrates his technique with many case studies. He provides a full explanation of what addiction is, from both a psychological and a pharmacological perspective. The book demonstrates that addicted people can be treated effectively with this combination of individual therapy, self-help, and peer support

What is Alcoholics Anonymous? : a path from addiction to recovery by Marc Galanter( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcoholics Anonymous has two million members worldwide, yet this fellowship remains a mystery to most people, and is even viewed by some as a cult or a religion. Written by a psychiatrist and educator in the treatment of alcohol and drug abuse, What Is Alcoholics Anonymous? provides an overview of this popular and established yet poorly understood recovery movement. Author Dr. Marc Galanter integrates findings from the latest research in psychology, cultural history, and clinical science with a range of first-person experiences with AA. The result is a thorough, objective, and accessible investigation into what AA is, how it works, and how the organization might be considered and used by both healthcare professionals and anyone affected by pursuit of recovery--Adapted from publisher description
