Editorial Reviews

From the Author

As the Senior Author and Series Editor, I am pleased to announce that the new editions of our Treatment 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 Treatment Planner. Dr. Tim Bruce, especially, has brought his wide knowledge base in Evidence-based Practice to bear on several of our Planners. Each Planner has, of course, been updated with the new DSM-5/ICD-10 codes, but beyond that there are several other improvements in the latest books. I believe you will find this expanded and revised edition is a significant step forward in being a resource for finding a menu of succinctly written statements describing Interventions to help you help your client recover. Allow me to list the new material you will find in our latest attempt to help you write clinically sound and complete treatment plans:  
1) The latest research-supported, evidence-based Interventions
2) Updated and expanded bibliotherapy references as well as research related references for each chapter topic
3) A new Appendix which provides written Objectives and Interventions that capture the essential theme of the ten Core Principles of the SAMSHA-endorsed Recovery Model
4) A new Suggested Diagnosis section in each chapter that provides a helpful transition from DSM-IV/ICD-9 to the newly listed DSM-5/ICD-10 diagnostic codes and labels
5) A more complete integration of suggested Homework Exercises in each chapter to support Interventions
6) A set of Objectives and Interventions added to each chapter to assist in assessing specifiers relevant to DSM-5 diagnosis

The Practice Planners series are indispensable tools regularly reviewed by several active psychotherapists in my current and past shared offices of licensed clinicians. Included countless suggestions and recommendations are easily adaptable to support singular to multiple specific client needs while simultaneously fulfilling mandated documentation requirements. The Practice Planners highly accessible quick reference format is ideal for pre-graduate interns to decades long seasoned practitioners.

This is an intelligent and compassionate treatment planner that begins with 35 (why 35?) behaviorally-based presenting problems.

This is, as you probably would expect, a desk reference. This book serves that role admirably. The overall structure gives you ease of access -- and it is rather remarkable how much information the editors have managed to include here. (The book's blurb claims that there are over 1,000 objectives and interventions.) And the book contains a great quantity of clinically-valid and insurer-friendly language. That is a time saver.

Moving from the rich messiness of human behavior (and patient reporting) into the more structured world of goal-based care can be a daunting prospect. This book aids that process.

This "Treatment Planner" covers just about all the types of treatment need by pros. It's is easy to use, clear in its presentation, and includes many new concepts/ ideas that may not have been well-known before its publication. Also, the DSM-5 updates are a fine addition!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As both an instructor and a life-long student of the field of psychology, I tend to be rather skeptical of books that are supposed to revolutionize or economize the treatment planning for mental health patients. However, I was rather taken aback by the quality of 5th edition Practice Planners by Wiley publishing. Actually, I had not previous looked at this series and now I’m glad that I have.

I have looked at three in the series, child psychotherapy, adolescent psychotherapy and addiction treatment. The point of each is to provide the practitioner with concise and understandings of various disorders within each of the practice fields and then suggest long-term goals and short-term objectives. Written alongside each objective are strategies for therapeutic interventions. For example, the common childhood disorder of ADHD includes (in both the respective texts on Childhood and Adolescent Psychotherapy) the same behavioral definitions that the counselor would be able to list for the patient. Then there are listed six long-term goals and several short-term goals. Note that the text does not claim an exhaustive list of symptoms or goals, but provides the most common types of goals. So again for each of the texts regarding the issue of ADHD, “objective #5, Parents and the client demonstrate increased knowledge about ADHD and its treatment.” It then immediately lists five treatment efforts to obtain this objective.

The Addiction treatment planner is one that I need to spend more time reviewing since addiction is not one of my specialty interests, but to my surprise it goes far beyond the usual choices such as gambling and drugs. It provides treatment planning issues for a host of mental health disorders including personality disorders and adult-ADHD.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I use this as I'm preparing to start my practicum and internship, to ensure my notes follow a standard format for the agency. For my needs it is sufficiently detailed; it covers 36 behavioral issues and provides examples for each. It is updated for the DSM5 with relevant and necessary information.

As you may be aware, all of the treatment planner books follow a similar format with their templates, and cover a wide gamut of behavioral issues. If you are seeing children and adolescents, while there is dissimilar advice between books (this has play therapy, where the adolescent book does not as much), you could likely just get one and adapt the information back and forth.

If you are a novice such as I, it provides a fantastic starting point to build good clinical habits on regarding documentation.

Although it seems great to save paper, this Kindle version does not offer page numbers. Only locations. I have been having to ask professor and fellow classmates for the names of the sections since we are only given page numbers on the syllabus. In addition, the layout of the text is totally messed up...I have whole columns that only have one word per line!

I will probably end up paying more money to buy a hardcopy. I would like the opportunity to get my money back on this version.

In general the book and it's objectives are helpful, but their take on Gender Identity Disorder is terrible. Their recommendations are horribly uninformed and would do much damage to any child or parent that seeks treatment with dysphoria regarding assigned gender. The authors conflate sexual orientation and gender identity, and advocate imposing sterotypical gender norms upon children.

As a school social worker this book has proven invaluable for me. Besides giving a great framework for working with children, many times I know what I'm doing but can not put it down in a few sentences that would fit insurance guidelines as well those of my agency. This book helped me put many of my treatment plans and goals on paper in a satisfactory manner.

I have since bought other books in the Practice Planner series and have not been disappointed.
