Alan Marlatt, who was a pioneer in addiction treatment died unexpectedly on the 14th of March. This link takes you to an interview with him. And this is a short article about his life and work.
He is mostly known for his two key books on Relapse Prevention and Assessment he had a longstanding interest in Mindfulness applied to addiction work. His book ‘Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention for Addictive Behaviours’ came out just recently and it looks like it will be an important stimulus for further work and research into this area.
