Connors, Gerard J and DiClemente, Carlo C and Velasquez, Mary Marden and Donovan, Dennis M (2013) Substance abuse treatment and the stages of change: selecting and planning interventions. Guilford substance abuse series New York: Guilford .

A widely adopted practitioner resource and course text, this book shows how to apply knowledge about behavior change in general -- and the stages-of-change model in particular -- to make substance abuse treatment more effective. The authors are leaders in the field who describe ways to tailor interventions for clients with varying levels of motivation or readiness to change. They draw on cutting-edge theory and research to explain what works (and what doesn't work) at different stages of change. Rich clinical examples illustrate the "whats," "whys," and "how-tos" of using the stages-of-change model to inform treatment planning and intervention for individuals, groups, couples, and families.
