On Anger Management: Spanish-Language Pubs Available
Substance use and abuse are often closely linked with anger and violence. To help counselors and treatment providers expand their support to Spanish-speaking individuals in recovery, the Agency has released two new publications in Spanish.
Released in English in 2002, Anger Management for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Clients, was one of SAMHSA's most frequently ordered publications. To reach a wider audience, SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment recently released the manual and workbook in Spanish: Programa para el manejo del enojo en clientes con problemas de abuso de sustancias y trastornos de salud mental.
Both sets of manuals are intended for use as part of a 12-week treatment program. Individuals who participate in the sessions learn how to manage their anger and how to diminish the impact anger can have on their lives.
To obtain free copies contact SAMHSA's National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug information at 1 (800) 729-6686 (English and Spanish) or 1 (800) 487-4889 (TDD). For more information on SAMHSA's Multi Language Initiative visit www.kap.samhsa.gov/mli/.
