Global Criteria: The 12 Core Functions of the Substance Abuse Counselor - Sixth Edition


by John Herdman, Ph.D., LADC, ICADC


The Sixth Edition incorporated TAP 21 and the tasks from the Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselor Job Task Analysis 2008 from the IC&RC. This Sixth Edition now includes instructor lesson plans and student quizzes. It is designed to assist instructors in preparing students seeking certification as alcohol and other drug abuse counselors. It is in accord with the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) standards and reflects the crosswalk with TAP 21. These standards are necessary, important and critical for the protection of the public, individual clients and counselors. In an easily read and organized format the book provides the information on the global criteria and domain tasks used by the ICRC member boards around the world to evaluate applicants for certification as substance abuse counselors.

Global Criteria: The 12 Core Functions of a Substance Abuse Counselor: Sixth Edition is valued by both professors in counselor training programs and clinical supervisors in treatment programs. Not only do the Chapters have lesson plans for instructors, but includes quizzes with answers in Appendix A and Sample Forms in Appendix B.

Contents: History, Screening, Intake, Orientation, Assessment, Treatment Planning, Counseling, Case Management, Crisis Intervention, Client Education, Referral, Reports and Recordkeeping, Consultation, Answers to Quizzes, and Sample Forms.
