A must-have reference for clinicians completing insurance forms or practising in treatment settings!
From the Back Cover
Therapist's Guide to Clinical Intervention, Second Edition is a must-have reference for clinicians completing insurance forms, participating in managed care, or practicing in treatment settings requiring formalized goals and treatment objectives. This practical, hands-on handbook outlines treatment goals and objectives for each type of psychopathology as defined by the diagnostic and statistical manual by the American Psychiatric Association, identifies skill-building resources, and provides samples of all major professional forms.
With over 30% new information, this new edition covers a variety of new special assessments including domestic violence, phobias, eating disorders, adult ADHD, and outpatient progress. New skill-building resources focus on surviving holiday blues, improving communication, overcoming shyness, teaching couples to fight "fair", surviving divorce, successful stepfamilies, managing anger, coping with post traumatic stress, and more. Additional professional forms have been added including treatment plans, a brief mental health evaluation, parent's questionnaire, and a contract for providing service for people with no insurance.
In a practical hands-on approach, this handbook:
* Outlines treatment goals and objectives for DSM-IV diagnoses
* Provides outlines for assessing special circumstances
* Offers skill building resources to supplement treatment
* Provides samples for a wide range of business and clinical forms

Highly, highly, highly recommended.
I think this is good when I am stuck writing a treatment plan and I know the kinds of things I want to start doing but I am having trouble putting words to it.
However, if this book was given some structure and contextualized the tips, it would be much, MUCH more useful.
This book has forced me to confront my negative bias against typos. I wish I could just ignore them and focus on content, but I have not evolved to that level yet. Other reviewers have already mentioned the disorganization of the material. I'll add that this book is oriented towards solution-focused therapy for adults, which means it's full of checklists, rating scales, homework assignments, and other CBT-based interventions. That being said, there is a ton of info in this book, and it'd probably be helpful for a freshly graduated CBT clinician.
