Editorial Reviews

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 Homework Planner includes new exercises to help the client work toward recovery between treatment sessions. Each chapter in the Homework Planner has homework tasks that are created specifically for a problem dealt with in the parallel Treatment Planner. Although each homework assignment is tied to an Intervention in its parallel Treatment Planner, the exercises are created to stand alone as useful without using the Treatment Planner content. Some of the exercises have been shortened to make client compliance more likely and new homework assignments have been added also. Chapters dealing with new problems in the Treatment Planner have resulted in a new set of 3-5 homework exercises in the Homework Planner to support Interventions for that new problem. If you have not tried using our Homework Planners, I think you will find them an excellent adjunct to increase client treatment engagement.

These assignments are a wonderful adjunct to the therapy process. They are very down-to-earth and practical -- no off-the-wall stuff here, just common sense, mainline psychology applied to everyday life circumstances. They are not too long so the client will be more apt to complete them. The exercises are focused on common presenting problems (Anger Management, Chemical Dependence, Depression, Sexual Dysfunction, Intimate Relationship Conflict, etc.) and they can be copied directly from the book or customized on your computer and printed from the CD that is included. If you are using The Complete Adult Psychotherapy Treatment Planner to formulate your client's treatment plan, these asignments are fully integrated with the presenting problems in the Treatment Planner book. I also like the fact that these assignments can be accessed in TheraScribe, the computerized treatment planning software, if you purchase the additional module that can be installed into the program. These Practice Planner materials save a lot of time and enhance the treatment process. You will not be disappointed.

So, I love this book but am only giving it three stars for the Kindle edition. The reason is because I found out that printing directly from the Kindle app is not permitted and the main reason I bought this book is to print the handouts. I tried to take a screen shot of the photos of handouts in the book to use but they are very poor quality and can't be read when enlarged for 8x11 paper. I also tried to copy and paste the material into Word and it lost all of its formatting. It took me a long time to re-format everything to resemble the handout that is in the book. The print version of this book is "copy-ready" to print the handouts and it comes with a CD with handouts to print at ones leisure. I truly do not understand why it can't be printed from the Kindle app...if Kindle is worried about us making unauthorized copies from digital versions of books, they should reflect on the fact that we can all use a copy machine to do the same with printed books.

Great book though...I just recommend getting the print version for a 5 star experience. :-) A lesson learned. :-)

Well worth the price and a great additional to my practice. Now I have professional hand-outs for those clients who are motivated to work between sessions. The homework hand-outs are practical and not cumbersome. Topics include those that relate to substance abuse, grief, parenting, couples, problem solving, anxiety and phobias, career planning, self esteem, positive thoughts, and other practical topics. I find that I can use almost all of the assignments for my various clients. Often when I buy a book I only use a portion of it. However, this one is a keeper from cover to cover. Using these assignments has moved my practice to the next level in professionalism and effectiveness. Book includes a DVD that you can download to your computer making it extremely easy to duplicate.

it helps when clients that want to make changes in their lifes can see in frount of them work they are doing to make that change. my therapist didn't provide me with homework, so i went out and got my own! i think homework should be a part of every therapy duration. even if you give them a sheet and tell them they can do it when they are ready, just to leave it on there coffee table or some other place they can see it a lot and so they can think about the questions, and then they can do it at their own pace and when they are done and ready to discusse it they can bring it back.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been using this series for years. They are great and this one is no exception. It helps therapists stay focused and move the client forward. You don't have to guess if your homework assignment is useful. It makes planning your work a lot easier. It also gives clients a way to track their progress.

What I don't like about it is that it's really generic. There are only a few homework assignments for any given treatment issue. Most counselors have a niche, so my advice is to get the one that most closely fits your niche. For example, if you do child therapy, get the one for that. If you work with sexual abuse survivors, there is one for that. This is a great introduction to the series though. If you haven't tried these, I'd start here.

If you are someone looking for a self-help tool, I'd say get something different. This is probably going to be too broad for your needs.

usually these books cover almost everything, but you can see the table of contents online before you buy. I also have parole and probation, group, and many others, including the therapy planners. The homework planners have a cd, so you can make changes to the exercises and activities before printing. Personally, I use the therapy and the homework series and I feel it is enough for me because the former helps you write notes, and also get an idea of what you should do with your clients if you need some direction so I didn't buy notes planners; and the latter is flexible. if you have to choose between the two, I would recommend therapy over homework because homework you can find online. Contact me if you need info on websites, I have collected some resources
