- What a wonderful book on CD treatment.The
key thing is that Effective CD Counseling inspired me
to work harder at counseling and taught me things about CD issues
in a nice detailed way.
-- George Karasievich, Psy.D.
- I not only enjoyed the writing style,
but I also learned a great deal. I believe Effective CD Counseling
is a learning tool and can be utilized academically to enhance
the treatment of addiction.
-- Maria-Blanca Natal, M.Ed.
- Having worked in the CD field for over
twenty-five years, Im familiar with many publications by
nationally known authors. Most were helpful in my continuing
education and training. None, in my opinion, equals the comprehensiveness,
flow and readability of Effective CD Counseling. My only
disappointment is that the book was not available to others and
to me sooner.
-- Gilbert Anthony, CD Counselor
- In working with individuals with a substance
abuse/addiction problem, Dr. Hale has developed a great incisiveness
of mind, a deep compassion of heart, and one of the best understandings
of the dynamics of this sickness and recovery.
-- Yvonne Findley, Director, Springview Recovery Centers, Inc.
