About the Authors
Steven L. Jaffe, M.D., received his psychiatry training at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, and his child psychiatry training at Emory University. He has been Editor of the Newsletter of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and President of the Georgia Council for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. Jaffe if currently the Director of Adolescent Programs, Psychiatric and Chemical Dependency, at CPC-Parkwood Hospital and Associate Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
Dr. Jaffe is well established as an authority in the field of alcohol and other substance abuse in adolescents. His earlier Workbook for Adolescent Dependency Recovery (APPI, 1990) has become a standard resource in the field. There is no question that these two additions—a ‘first step’ intervention workbook for the adolescent patient and an instructional and informational manual for staff—will be of great value to every clinician and every program dealing with this important and serious problem.—Jerry M. Wiener, M.D., Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, The George Washington University School of Medicine, Past President, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Dr. Jaffe has contributed significantly to the treatment of substance abusing adolescents with this comprehensive, yet simple and straightforward, self-evaluation workbook. He has artfully created an effective treatment and evaluation tool by seriously considering adolescent development, diagnosis, a developmental model of recovery and change, twelve-step program principles, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic theory. This practical workbook and accompanying staff manual are a welcome addition to the field in this era of evidence-based treatment and managed care restrictions on the length of stay.—Peter Cohen, M.D., Behavioral Health Services, Washington County Health System
