Dr. K's Bookshelf: The Relapse Prevention Therapy Workbook
“If you have knowledge, let others light their candle in it.”
Every once in a while my curiosity discovers an extraordinary therapeutic resource. This month my focus is The Relapse Prevention Therapy Workbook by Terence Gorski and Stephen Grinsted. This particular resource has been useful in my practice for over 10 years.
Addressing relapse prone individuals and even folks who are just entering recovery, this self-guided workbook it’s both user-friendly and best practice. This RP program allows the person easily to recognize and cope with high risk thoughts, people and situations that will steer them back to relapse.
Upon completion individuals actually have a individualized concrete cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) relapse prevention roadmap. Numerous individuals who follow this program have reported they see the strength it adds to their recovery program.
