"Milkman and Wanberg's program rests upon the best that science has to offer.  Once this workbook stimulates change, it pays attention to the principles of relapse prevention that will help young people stay changed - and this is the litmus test for any treatment program that targets behavioral problems."   -- Dr. Howard J. Shaffer, Ph.D., C.A.S. , Director & Associate Professor, Division on Addictions, Harvard Medical School  Psychology of Addictive Behaviors   " Pathways to Self-Discovery and Change is the most comprehensive and thoughtful program we have seen to help at-risk youth gain freedom from crime and drugs and develop attitudes and skills to lead productive prosocial lives."   -- G. Alan Marlatt, Ph.D. and George A. Parks, Ph.D. , Addictive Behaviors Research Center, University of Washington  "This exceptional and widely needed program shows great promise as a developmentally appropriate treatment model for adolescents who manifest co-occurring disturbances with substance abuse and criminal activity.  It is uniquely designed to interest and engage high-risk teenagers in a thoughtful array of cognitive-behavioral restructuring exercises that are geared to promote fulfilling and responsible life choices."   -- Lloyd I. Sederer, MD, Formerly Director of Clinical Services , American Psychiatric Association, and Medical Director , McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School THE PARTICIPANTS WORKBOOK ( Pathways to Self-Discovery and Change PSD-C) presents a written and illustrated format through which clients can better understand and reflect on each of 32 adolescent-focused CBT treatment sessions. PSD-C supplies clients with a visual and written record of all treatment objectives, content information, modeling and role plays, discussion points, interactive exercises, reflective assignments and a place to record their ideas, insights, short and long term goals, and progress during the entire treatment episode. The Workbook is geared to a range of reading and conceptual abilities. Comic strip illustrations and interesting stories (presented through the narrative voice of adolescents) are used to engage clients in active discussion about the situations, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that have become embroidered in their patterns of substance abuse, delinquency and crime. The Workbook guides participants through three discrete phases of resiliency and success: Challenge to Change WHAT?; Commitment to Change - HOW; and Ownership of Change NOW!
