About the Author:

Edward L. Zuckerman, PhD, found his life’s passion while working as a psychiatric aide at New York’s Bellevue Hospital in the 1960s. He earned his doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Pittsburgh and worked in community mental health while gaining his license. He has worked with adults with developmental disabilities as well as those with severe alcohol addiction, acted as liaison with state hospitals, and taught undergraduates, as well as maintaining an independent practice in general clinical psychology for many years. He now lives with his family in rural western Pennsylvania, with horses, ducks, geese, chickens, and lots of mud and trees. There, he consults and creates worthwhile practice tools for clinicians.


Review:

"This book's title doesn't do it justice: in addition to offering lists of synonyms, the book provides a vast smorgasbord of the materials that mental health clinicians need to evaluate patients, write reports, and navigate the often confusing nuances of nomenclature. I value it especially because its reach extends far beyond the confines of the DSM to address the countless questions and procedures not covered by official diagnostic manuals. This reference is indispensable for any clinician whose work depends heavily on language--in other words, all of us. It richly deserves its honored place on my desk."--James Morrison, MD, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Oregon Health & Science University 

"I find the Thesaurus particularly useful for constructing forensic reports, in that it enhances the precision of the language used. Precisely written reports are much less subject to litigious misinterpretation."--Edward B. Heyden, EdD, Psychology Master's Program, Carlos Albizu University, Miami, Florida

"The Clinician’s Thesaurus is a comprehensive reference for anyone working in the field of mental health: the student preparing for a clinical career, the seasoned professional fulfilling the myriad demands of the field, or the supervisor overseeing the performance of a broad range of professionals. Not only does the Thesaurus offer detailed guidelines for conducting mental health evaluations, it also offers practical advice on writing up and presenting evaluation findings. The flow of the chapters provides a convenient, comprehensive approach to interviewing, report writing, and their relationship to treatment. The book includes concise descriptions of all major mental health diagnoses and their behavioral nuances, and clearly illustrates the relationship among assessment, diagnosis, and intervention. This clear, user-friendly work is designed to help the clinician successfully tackle one of the most challenging aspects of clinical work, the skillful documentation of evaluation and treatment."--Ann A. Abbott, PhD, LCSW, Graduate Social Work Department, West Chester University

"This comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide provides the ABCs of conducting interviews and writing reports in the mental health field. The 7th edition contains updated information, relevant websites, and many additional resources for both novices and senior clinicians. I plan to make this book required reading for all my practicum and intern students."--Dorothy Preston, PhD, psychologist, Phoenix, Arizona

"Therapists from multiple mental health disciplines will find the Clinician’s Thesaurus a useful resource in their practice. The book’s value extends beyond helping you write professional reports--it will also guide you in providing a more precise and thorough assessment of your clients. In the classroom, the Clinician’s Thesaurus would make a good adjunct text for a psychopathology course. The 7th edition makes greater use of Internet resources, among other nice additions."--Lee Williams, PhD, Marital and Family Therapy Program, University of San Diego



"Dr. Zuckerman could have justifiably entitled this extraordinary book 'The Clinician's Handbook.' The Clinician's Thesaurus is much more than a thesaurusit's more like a comprehensive guide for client assessment and report writing. Zuckerman has done a remarkable job at creating an extremely valuable and easy-to-use resource for seasoned clinicians and students alike." (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews 2010-08-11)

"No ordinary thesaurus....By presenting the standard language of the mental health field in an organized fashion, this clinical tool allows professionals to concentrate on the nature of the problem by selecting the best descriptors....Essential. Upper-level undergraduate students through professionals/practitioners in mental health." (Choice 2011-03-27)

"This is a must-have book for clinicians and students alike....4 stars." (Doody's Review Service 2010-08-11)
