This guidebook offers so much you will use it time and time again. With sections on what questions to ask, different formats for writing reports and progress notes, abbreviations, DSM reference, and medical conditions that masquerade as mental illness, you will find this book invaluable. Great for students who are new to diagnosis and report writing and a wonderful tool for the skilled clinician in avoiding stale reports and progress notes.

A great companion for the newly practicing therapist to "get in the groove." An ongoing resource when one's flow of words is just dribbling rather than flowing. Preferred the ease of the earlier editions' spiral bounding - but the CD has been adequate compensation.

This book is great to refer to when writing psychological reports. It provides professional ways to state things within a psychological report. This is very helpful when you are drawing a blank on how to express something. It also provides information on different aspects of the clinical interview and how to word questions which can be very helpful to look over every once in awhile for a refresher.

A friend, who is working on her LCSW clinical hours, recommended this book. I am an MSW student and while studying methods for doing psychosocial assessments this book was a very valuable resource. It has words and phrases that are clear, succinct, and convey meaning quickly and clearly.

I highly recommend it for all MSW students, social workers, and LCSW's.

This is an easy reference book for writing psych-evals and residential school reports. Great for jogging your memory when you think you have run out of words...However, I bought the accompanying CD, it is not in any way helpful...

The format of this book is a little tricky, and it took me a few days to gain a comprehensive overview. However, this book does offer a lot of good information about the assessment and treatment plan writing process, including some examples. All in all, a useful book to add to your home library as a reference guide if you are a worker in the mental health field, or student.
