3.0 out of 5 stars Great for Cert or Re-Cert, but "Therapy Light" June 14 2010
By Not Moses - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This =is= a terrific text for certification and re-certification preparation... albeit with some caveats. Most of what Johnson has pulled together =is= "good stuff," as far as it goes. But there's a lot that isn't included, and some of what is included is more in the nature of "good ideas" than truly evidence-based treatment.

I'm also forced to agree with some of the one-, two- and three-star-giving reviewers that the book =is= poorly organized, even if it flows fairly well from one topic to the next, but for me, that's less of an issue than some of it's recommendations and many of it's fairly obvious exclusions.

Johnson's training appears to have occured at the apogee of the cognitive-behavioral and family systems eras. Her notions of therapy are essentially behavioristic and/or cognitive, which is fine, but only insofar as what those approaches to therapy can accomplish. Which makes TG2CI a sort of "therapy light" if one is up against a personality-disordered adult molested as a child with the sort of dense defense mechanisms typical in such people. Having worked with quite a few in the past two-plus decades, I'd have been utterly helpless in the face of their mysteries and manipulations if I'd been solely an REBT, CBT, CAT, SIQR or schematherapist.

That said, I admit that third-wave psychodynamic, experiential ("Gestalt-plus"), interpersonal and new-wave neuropsychological approaches tend to defy this sort of organization. And that may be the book's essential fault. Johnson has sought to reduce psychotherapy to a series of outlines. And for the patient with two or three overlapping Axis II compilations, let alone three or four in borderline organization, a series of outlines (even like those provided by the estimable Teddy Millon, Seth Grossman, Aaron Beck and Arthur Freeman) is wholly inadequate.

Those considerations aside, this book =does= belong on your bookshelf. No other text I know of has as much "procedural" material between its covers, let alone all the assessment forms one can lay down on top of copier. At twice the price, it would be a bargin in that respect.

Just don't buy it thinking that "all" the answers -- or even useful synopses thereof -- are between its covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Resource Aug. 12 2006
By Richard A. Singer Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is priceless in my eyes. It has earned its price countless number of times. This book includes everything from Psychoeducation handouts, treatment plan information, assessment, administrative paperwork and much more. I have used this book on a daily basis in my clinical practice and continue to refer to it regularly. The amount of work put into this book is enormous and I appreciate every bit of it. Thank you Sharon and i look forward to more workbooks, etc . Im sure anything you create will be magnificent.

Highly, highly, highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of info but very disorganized Oct. 10 2009
By P-dog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was surprised at how disorganized this book is. There are lots of typos and no discernible structure. There are some good tips and ideas but many of them, without context, don't make a lot of sense.

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.

I have already recommended this book to many of my colleagues. It covers so many topics and provides practical, useful information for psychoeducation and treatment options. I don't know what I would do without it. I would love to see workbooks and printouts by this author.
