Thank you Sharon and i look forward to more workbooks, etc . Im sure anything you create will be magnificent. Highly, highly, highly recommended.

The Therapist's Guide to Clinical Intervention

"The Therapist's Guide to Clinical Intervention is a wonderful addition to my office reference library! It is a comprehensive "guide" to writing treatment plans, and organizing data for easier documentation. This guide is a much appreciated time-saving resource. I recommend this book as an additional reference guide for any therapist in private practice."

Thank You.

A time saver that keeps me sane!!! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Thorough, practical and ethical guide.

The Therapist's Guide to Clinical InterventionThe 123's of Treatment Planning is a timely resource for therapists in the age of managed care. This is a pragmatic and helpful reference for conceptualizing and writing treatment plans that should meet insurance, managed care, and national quality guidelines. There are descriptions of major DSM-IV disorder groups, along with general treatment goals and accompanying objectives for consideration. These plans are from a cognitive behavioral viewpoint. For graduate students, this first section will provide guidelines for treatment planning. For experienced professionals, it will provide reminders, help fill in some blanks, and encourage the use of some new techniques. The second section is on the clinical assessment of special circumstances. The red flag issues of suicide, homicide and grave disability assessments are covered in a succinct and straight forward manner. This is an excellent review for post doctorates preparing for a licensing exam. There are also assessment guidelines for chemical dependency, child abuse, spousal abuse, child custody evaluations and Worker's Compensation disability evaluations.The third section covers skill building for patients. It is an assemblage of file folders that most of us keep on general areas that are helpful to our clients. Areas covered include: management of stress, anger, anxiety and depression, relaxation, communication, dealing with chemical dependency, and parenting.The final section deals with forms, both of a clinical and business nature, that are used on a daily basis in independent practice offices. Many experienced independent practitioners will find this helpful when they wish to update their forms.The Therapist's Guide to Clinical Intervention is thorough, practical, and ethical. It is a reference source for graduate students, clinicians preparing for their licensing exams, and for seasoned professionals.Michael F. Antrim, Ph.D.

An excellent tool for the new therapist.

Sharon Johnson provides a valuable service to graduate students in counseling or clinical psychology with publication of the Therapist's Guide to Clinical Intervention: The 1-2-3's of Treatment Planning. I recommend this volume to my graduate students in psychology who are preparing for a professional milestone such as a comprehensive exam or licensing interview. Several year's worth of detailed knowledge is presented clearly and succinctly in this compact, practical overview of "everything you thought you knew about psychotherapy but can't call to mind just now". We recently added the Therapist's Guide to Clinical Intervention as a required text for our graduate course in Advanced Individual Psychotherapy, and the students are grateful to learn of such a direct, practical guide to standard practices, diagnostic criteria, and documentation. Because it is designed as a handy reference, the Therapist's Guide to Clinical Intervention does not cover every style of therapy or therapeutic technique, but it does cover a wide variety of approaches to therapy. The index makes it easy to find what you need quickly. In an informal survey, our students of marriage and family therapy preferred Johnson's treatment planning manual to other similar references.
