Book Description :

Cognitive therapy offers a well-documented and cost-effective psychosocial treatment model for working with substance abuse disorders. Comprehensive and accessible, this volume clearly details the cognitive model of addiction, the specifics of case formulation, management of the therapeutic relationship, and the structure of the therapy sessions. It discusses how to educate patients in the treatment model and procedures and manage their cravings and urges for drugs and alcohol. Specific cognitive and behavioral strategies and techniques are described in detail, as are methods for understanding and working with patients who present concomitant problems of depression, anxiety, low frustration tolerance, anger, and personality disorders. Also addressed are such significant issues as crisis management and relapse prevention. Enhancing the utility of the volume are appendices featuring sample client inventories and checklists. These forms are designed to help the clinician identify targets for intervention, track progress over time, and develop an individualized relapse prevention plan for each client.

Book Description :

A striking characteristic of addictive behavior is the pursuit of immediate reward at the risk of longer-term detrimental outcomes. It is typically accompanied by the expression of a strong desire to cease from or at least control consumption that has such consequences, followed by lapse, further resolution, relapse, and so on. Understood in this way, addiction includes substance abuse as well as behavioral compulsions like excessive gambling or even uncontrollable shopping. Behavioral economics and neurophysiology provide well-worn paths to understanding this behavior and this book regards them as central components of this quest. However, the specific question it seeks to answer is, What part does cognition – the desires we pursue and the beliefs we have about how to accomplish them – play in explaining addictive behavior? The answer is sought in a methodology that indicates why and where cognitive explanation is necessary, the form it should take, and the outcomes of employing it to understand addiction. It applies the Behavioral Perspective Model (BPM) of consumer choice, a tried and tested theory of more routine consumption, ranging from everyday product and brand choice, through credit purchasing and environmental despoliation, to the more extreme aspects of consumption represented by compulsion and addiction. The book will advance debate among behavioral scientists, cognitive psychologists, and other professionals about the nature of economic and social behavior.

Book Description :

Acute and chronic usage of morphine cause degeneration of some parts of brain which responsible for cognition activity such as learning and memory .In this study we investigate the Acute, sub acute, sub chronic and chronic administration of morphine on learning and memory by using Moris Water Maze, Active Avoidance Test and Passive Avoidance Test. Our data demonstrated that acute administration of morphine does not impact on cognition behavior but sub acute, sub chronic and chronic administration of morphine can be alter learning and memory. Thus, morphine abuse in addition to dependency can caused a loss of learning and memory functions.

Book Description :

Academic research in alcohol addiction presents diverse results and subject inadequacies. This study identifies conscience and its influence through spirituality on successful recovery as promoting unity and adequacy in the field. The purpose of the study is to analyze the relationship between conscience, spirituality, and recovery from alcohol addiction. This threefold framework underlines the conceptual importance of cognition, affect, behavior, spirituality, and character in addiction studies. Narrative analysis (NA) is employed for designing the present research. It is utilized for collection, examination, and formulation of the results derived from the participants' stories. Semi-structured interviews are used within the NA framework to provide the data from the twelve participants. The latter are selected as a homogeneous group based on characteristics of their addiction, spirituality, and recovery. The analysis of narratives defines conscience with its cognitive, emotive, and conative elements as related to spirituality. The conscience's nature and functioning undergo deterioration during addiction and complete rejuvenation through participants' spiritual transformation of a transcendent divine experience. Spiritually empowered conscience supports progressive recovery from alcohol addiction. The conscientious approach to self, life, and others is shaped by virtue and spiritual commitment.

The Role of Automatic Cognition and Impulsivity in Hazardous Drinking

Book Description :

The current thesis aimed to explore the associations between hazardous drinking, automatic processing of alcohol-related cues and behavioural impulsivity. In addition to assessing the impact of these processes on hazardous drinking in isolation, the specific prediction of dual process models of addiction, that the association between automatic cognitive processes and hazardous drinking would be moderated by behavioural impulsivity, was also tested. These general research questions were investigated cross sectionally in young adult student populations (chapter 3), / adolescents (chapter 4), and older adults (chapter 5). The aim of the study described in chapter 6 was to investigate the effect of a priming dose of alcohol on these processes and their association with alcohol-seeking behaviour. Finally, chapter 7 was an investigation into the mediators and moderators of the effects of ego depletion on drinking behaviour from the perspective of dual process models of addiction. Automatic processing of alcohol-related cues predicted drinking behaviour in all cross sectional studies, although the specific aspects of automatic processes that predicted drinking behaviour differed. The effects of the alcohol prime and anticipated effects of alcohol on different measures of cognitive bias were inconsistent, and automatic cognitive processes only predicted ad-lib drinking in non-intoxicated individuals. Impulsivity only had a direct association with drinking within the sample of older adults, and neither the alcohol prime or ego depletion manipulation increased either measure of behavioural impulsivity. There was evidence that the alcohol priming effect was the result of general impairments in executive cognitive functioning. In the cross sectional studies support for dual process models of addiction was only found in the adolescent sample, in which impulsive decision making moderated the association between attentional bias and problem drinking in adolescents. There was evidence that increases in automatic approach responses towards alcohol-related cues following an alcohol prime were the result of impairments in executive cognitive function. Although ego depletion resulted in increased alcohol consumption this was not due to increased behavioural control by automatic cognitive processes. The results from the current thesis offer considerable support for incentive- motivational models of addiction, arid-highlight the importance of the roles of specific aspects of automatic cognitive processing in different samples. As behavioural impulsivity was only associated with hazardous drinking in older adults this suggests that cumulative experience with alcohol is necessary before these processes impact behaviour. Although support for dual process models of addiction was only found in adolescents, previous research would suggest that the predictions of these models are most likely to be found in such samples.

Book Description :

Emotion and addiction lie on a continuum between simple visceral drives such as hunger, thirst, and sexual desire at one end and calm, rational decision making at the other. Although emotion and addiction involve visceral motivation, they are also closely linked to cognition and culture. They thus provide the ideal vehicle for Jon Elster's study of the interrelation between three explanatory approaches to behavior: neurobiology, culture, and choice. The book is organized around parallel analyses of emotion and addiction in order to bring out similarities as well as differences. Elster's study sheds fresh light on the generation of human behavior, ultimately revealing how cognition, choice, and rationality are undermined by the physical processes that underlie strong emotions and cravings. This book will be of particular interest to those studying the variety of human motivations who are dissatisfied with the prevailing reductionisms. *Not for sale in Belgium, France, or Switzerland.
