From the Author
As the Senior Author and Series Editor, I am pleased to announce that new editions of four of our Treatment Planners, Homework Planners, and Progress Notes Planners have been released. We have been working on them as a team of authors for over two years. I am indebted to my coauthors who have deep expertise in the clinical field addressed in each Planner. I salute them and I believe you will find their work to be of the highest clinical caliber.
This new edition of the Progress Notes Planner is tied directly to the new Fifth Edition of its parallel Treatment Planner. Every Behavioral Definition statement and Therapeutic Intervention statement in the Treatment Planner is expanded on in a series of statements describing progress made in treatment. As the Treatment Planner is revised with new content, the Progress Notes Planner mirrors those changes in its content as well. So these books work as a closely tied set. The new Treatment Planner Interventions designed to assess DSM-5 specifiers as well as new evidence-based treatments are covered in this edition of the Progress Notes Planner.
