From the Author
In my exploration of various theories and therapies as a clinician since 1973, I have been treated to an array of approaches--Gestalt, Rogerian, Transactional Analysis, NLP, hypnosis, Reevaluation Counseling, EMDR, cognitive therapy, behavior therapy, object relations theories, Jungian theories, various family therapies, energy therapies, and psychopharmacology. Although I have been eclectic in my treatment approach, I have consistently offered clients psychoeducational literature. I now pass these "therapy gifts" on to you so you can give your clients the gems of wisdom from so many theoretical orientations.

Top Customer Reviews
I was impressed with the visual aids, assessment questionnaires and progress charts to help clients understand their problems and set up programs for change.
The range of problems covered in this book is so comprehensive that I've been able to find at least one helpful handout for each of my clients. I find the disk format especially helpful. I'm able to quickly print exactly what I want, and I can personalize the handouts any way I like. I have found that my clients develop a better understanding of their problems and begin to work on change more quickly when I give them these handouts at the beginning of therapy. I think this is a wonderful resource for both therapist and client!
If the therapist cannot trust the recommendations that the handouts have, what use are the handouts??? I like the concept and the organization but the research and recommendations are out of date! I am returning this book!
