Overview

Social Responsibility Therapy (SRT) was designed to help develop social responsibility in clients with multiple forms of unhealthy, harmful behavior from multiple cultural backgrounds. The Clinicians Guide to SRT was written to benefit clinicians in treatment programs or independent practice with clients who exhibit one or more forms of unhealthy, harmful behavior. This guide extends the Social Responsibility Therapy Treatment Manual for Adolescents and Young Adults (Yokley, 2008), adding in depth clinician-focused treatment descriptions. The Clinicians Guide to SRT integrates theory and research support into practical clinical applications of SRT skills and concepts illustrated with case examples. Since it is not possible to provide case examples for every behavior problem on the unhealthy, harmful behavior continuum, the Clinicians Guide to SRT uses: unhealthy eating case examples to illustrate treatment of behavior considered primarily harmful to self; alcohol and drug abuse case examples to illustrate treatment of behavior considered harmful to both self and others and; sexual offense case examples to illustrate behavior considered primarily harmful to others. Helping clients make healthy, positive lifestyle changes through the ART of Achieving Healthy Lifestyle Goals is covered along with the SRT multicultural treatment approach and Multimethod-Multipath Behavior Therapy model. Each of the four SRT "Healthy Behavior Success Skills" employed to help clients let go of unhealthy, harmful behaviors and pull themselves towards positive change (internal control) are described with step-by-step instructions. Providing the structure needed to help push clients towards positive change (external control) is also covered. Teaching clients the "Healthy Relationship Success Skills" needed to develop the positive relationships that help redirect them away from old unhealthy behaviors during stressful times and motivate them towards positive change (social learning) is explained in detail. Finally, helping clients understand how they acquired, maintained and generalized their unhealthy, harmful behavior to other problems through The Problem Development Triad" along with clinician support for using the Social Responsibility Therapy workbooks is provided. All clinical intervention chapters begin with "strait to the point, goals and objectives" for clinician treatment planning and include treatment exercises. The research support for each treatment approach or intervention discussed has been boxed off and moved from the text to the end of each section. This maintains the clinical guide focus for practitioners in direct service settings while providing scientist-practitioners in academic settings with the background information needed for their teaching and research.
