Book DescriptionHelp clients pivot away from the question "Am I an alcoholic?" and consider instead "Would my life be better without alcohol?" Amanda White, mental health clinician, creator of the popular Instagram account @therapyforwomen, and author of the best-selling book Not Drinking Tonight, is back with this must-have resource for her professional peers: Not Drinking Tonight: The Workbook . Having been sober for 8+ years herself, Amanda tackles therapists' most pressing question: How can I help clients whose alcohol use has become problematic but who don't identify as "alcoholics" or have no interest in traditional abstinence-based methods that involve going to rehab or attending 12-step groups? Using a harm reduction approach, each chapter contains worksheets and exercises that will help clients examine why they drink and allow them to change their relationship with alcohol as they learn to: - Regulate their emotions without alcohol - Set and maintain healthy boundaries - Redefine what authentic self-care looks like - Navigate sober socializing, dating, and sex - Create a relapse prevention plan - Build a sober life they love - And more!
