About this title
"Treatment Planning for Psychotherapists" is an exciting addition to existing literature on psychotherapy. Therapists-in-training and experienced practitioners alike will find this book informative and comprehensive. The theory of treatment planning is extensively illustrated with clinical examples and case histories that make the ideas come alive. A step-by-step review of assessment, diagnosis, and formulation shows how these elements contribute to planning.Appropriate treatment plans promote good patient-therapist relationships that contribute to successful, effective therapy outcomes. In today's managed care environment, treatment planning is more important than ever to ensure smooth interactions with reviewers, maximum services for patients, and prompt, reliable payment for practitioners. This practical guide will help clinicians provide higher quality care with time-efficient, competent therapies.This book is written for individual clinicians, especially those who treat patients or clients in their own offices. Currently, most treatment planning occurs in institutional settings where multidisciplinary teams of clinicians must meet regulatory requirements. These institutional treatment plans may be written more for the record than for the patient. By contrast, "Treatment Planning for Psychotherapists" guides the practitioner to develop useful, relevant, and individualized plans, which can assist the clinical work and satisfy outside reviewers as well.About the Author:
