Theory of addiction

£24.99

Product description

An understanding of addiction theory is vital to understanding addiction itself. Theory of Addiction takes theory development from a simple 'rational addiction model', adding elements such as compulsion, self-control and habit, to explain the 'big observations' in the field. As well as explaining and evaluating the arguments of each of the prevailing schools of thought, the book develops a new, synthetic theory of addiction that brings together the diverse elements of current models. Designed to enable students, practitioners and researchers to establish a starting point in the labyrinthine world of addiction theory, Theory of Addiction supports abstract thinking with concrete and realistic scenarios, underlining the centrality of theoretical understanding to working with addiction. Presents a digest of major existing theories in one volume, develops a new synthetic theory of addiction, recognises the diversity of the experience of addiction, discusses factors at the level of both the individual and populations, and provides key recommendations for the development of effective interventions.

Book is in very good condition, with very minor rubbing to the cover corners.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
