Review:

"This book is a leader in the field for instruction in the theoretical basis of therapeutic modalities and the acquisition of skills necessary to correctly and safely use modalities clinically. A number of modality textbooks are currently available, but this is more thorough in its coverage. In addition, the laboratory activities and checklists facilitate instruction and guide practice in the psychomotor skills of therapeutic modality application. 3 Stars."-- Doody's Review Service ( Doody's 2007-02-09)
