From the Back Cover
"I have used the Clinician's Electronic Thesaurus for several years. As my practice has changed with the advent of managed care and the increased demands for reports, this software has helped me keep current on appropriate diagnostic terminology. It provides dynamic, clinically correct descriptions and phraseology that I can easily import into a report without it sounding 'canned,' as I have experienced with other programs. I can produce fresh, pertinent, well-written professional reports in less than half the time. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to colleagues in any related discipline, whether they are producing court reports, managed care reports, custody reports or the myriad others that are demanded of busy professionals." Nora Fleming Young, PhD, Independent Counseling Psychologist
"The Clinician's Electronic Thesaurus is the greatest communication assistant I have ever used. The format of this tool is so user-friendly that it is actually inviting. I can always have the most accurate word before me at the press of a button. It could not be easier and my reports are more professional. This software has transformed my writing skills." C. Dale Ackley, PhD, DMin, Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress
