"How often have you regretted your failure to engage the elder generations of your family for information about their lives and memories? How many times have you wanted just one more hour with a deceased relative who could answer that one burning question that you suddenly thought about, and that no one else can answer? Perhaps you remember a time when an older acquaintance wanted to share with you some stories about "the good old days," but you couldn't be bothered. Most of us have had regrets like these, as will our descendants - unless we seek to record and preserve some stories for their use. Whether our stories are short and simple or long and complex matters not, but these stories will become part of their heritage and can certainly influence their lives. Though our contributions may not be recognized for decades, our lives matter to future generations and our stories should be told. The rest is up to each of us."--Back cover
Patricia Stevens, Robert L. Smith, and Robert Dobmeier
By Patricia Stevens, Robert L Smith.
Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member Robert Dobmeier: Retaining sobriety: Relapse prevention strategies.
Recognized for its clarity, accessibility, and practical approach, this widely used text thoroughly examines substance abuse in the population, addressing ways to measure the problem and ways to treat individuals and families who seek assistance. It is designed to increase the knowledge base of the reader/student about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) and to help them more clearly understand the process of working with clients who are misusing or abusing these drugs–now updated to include the changing substance abuse problems in our nation and around the world. The authors educate prospective and practicing clinicians and counselors by guiding them, step-by-step, through the process of working with substance-abuse clients. While the chapters generally build on each other as they take readers through the theory and practice of substance abuse counseling, each chapter can be used as a stand-alone source of valuable information. Illustrative case studies with critical thinking questions plus MyCounselingLab videos and exercises give readers opportunities to examine and discuss a wide variety of cases. Individual chapters on special populations add substantial depth to the text's treatment of its subject.

Trauma Counseling is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary guide to the theory and treatment of survivors of a broad spectrum of traumatic events, including interpersonal violence, hate crimes, school violence, community violence, natural disasters, and war and terrorism. It is written by a Fulbright scholar who is internationally recognized for her work with traumatized populations in Rwanda, several southern African countries, Russia, and the United States. It also includes the contributions of researchers from the United States, Australia, Africa, and Europe.
The book discusses evidence-based trauma assessment and intervention techniques and integrates the latest findings from neuropsychology and psychopharmacology. It focuses on issues of loss and grief, survivorship and disability, genocide, natural disasters, the impact of war on civilians and veterans, and the distinct effects of trauma in early childhood, childhood, and adolescence. Also addressed are ethical perspectives and methods of self-care for counselors who work with this population. The text will be of value to graduate counseling students and professional counselors as well as social workers, psychologists, psychiatric nurses, and other human service providers, who will be able to attend to trauma survivors with a depth of knowledge and confidence. The contents of Trauma Counseling not only fulfill but exceed the requirements of The Council of Accreditation and Counseling and Related Educational Program (CACREP) standards.

By Janice L DeLucia-Waack, Jeremiah Donigian.
Includes a section by College at Brockport faculty member Thomas Hernandez: Case studies in psychoeducational and task groups.
In their book, DeLucia-Waack and Donigian show readers how to lead multicultural groups more effectively. They include the insights of eleven group leaders whose cultural representations reflect unique families of origin, regions, migration, and acculturation experiences. These leaders' insights illustrate the ways in which persons of various cultural backgrounds may interpret events that occur in the groups in which they have been members or leaders. With this background, readers can learn to appreciate the uniqueness and power of their clients' stories, and they can become more of the ways in which their own cultural and ethnic heritage may influence the way they lead multicultural groups.

By Diana Hulse-Killacky, Jim Killacky, Jeremiah Donigian [College at Brockport emeritus].
This book focuses on leading task groups in a variety of settings, and deals with the way in which they develop and function. A conceptual model is profiled to help groups attain a balance between process and content—to make their work as efficient and effective as possible. The 3-phase conceptual model (warm-up, action, and closure) is linked to a series of cases from practicing leaders who work with a variety of task groups. These cases provide real-life examples of the use of warm-up, action, and closure, along with six scenarios covering a wide range of work/task group settings. Probing questions at the end of each chapter help readers develop their own framework for effectively designing, implementing, and concluding the work of task groups. These exercises provide an opportunity to visualize actual problem situations and to practice developing appropriate solutions. For individuals who recognize the importance of being part of a group, and effectively leading that group to the achievement of its goals—especially in the areas of counseling and social work, organizational development, non-profit management, and business.
