9780123435309: Effective Brief Therapies: A Clinician's Guide (Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional)

This treatment guide is based on selected disorders taken from the American Psychiatric Association DSM-IV Diagnostic Classifications. The disorders selected are treatable or responsive to brief therapy methods.
The therapist or student in training can use this book to identify the elements needed for formulating a treatment plan on disorders typically encountered in clinical practice. The approaches taken are based on cognitive behavioral principles and makes use of empirical findings. However, the case study format allows the reader to see how the assessment and treatment is implemented in a "real-life" patient, and not as a clinical abstraction distilled from research studies. Moreover, the treatment plan is outlined in a manner that makes reimbursement likely from managed care organizations and insurance companies. Effective Brief Therapies is useful as a reference for therapists and as a training guide for graduate students.

From the Back Cover:

No matter how well prepared and trained in theoretical aspects of psychotherapy, nascent clinicians experience considerable uncertainty in conceptualizing their cases and developing effective treatment regimens. Very often, they feel overwhelmed by clients who do not present symptoms that are described in standard textbook fashion. Indeed, they find that inevitably there are concurrent diagnoses and treatments and numerous unanticipated treatment issues. Students also quickly learn in this era of accountability and managed care that time efficiency in dealing with clients is an imperative. Through the presentation of comprehensive information drawn from interactions with clinical students in practice, field placements, internships and residencies over several decades, Effective Brief Therapies: A Clinician's Guide is devoted to facilitating the understanding of strategies for approaching cases, conducting viable assessments, and implementing contemporary therapies.
