Chapter 15 outlines the twelfth and final session of the ABCT treatment program. The goal of this session is to give the couple a positive set or expectancy that the client now has the skills to remain abstinent, the partner has better ways to cope with issues related to drinking, and the couple has begun to learn how to have a happier relationship. In addition, the goal is to let the couple know that they have learned a set of skills that can be applied in the day-to-day environment to deal with high-risk situations and that relapse-prevention techniques will help the client maintain gains made during treatment.
