This one book is like having a dozen books tucked into it.

THE SCHOOL COUNSELING AND SCHOOL SOCIAL WORK TREATMENT PLANNER is a well constructed work which purports to be a "timesaving resource," a claim with which I concur.
Kilgore Gagarin
Especially because these interventions are evidenced based practice!

As a social worker for the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services in New York, I work with children and adolescents who have social and emotional problems that interfere with their ability to adjust to their family situations, friendship groups and the many demands and challenges they face at school. I find the School Counseling and School Social Work Treatment Planner very helpful in identifying the presenting problem and then determining treatment goals, short-term objectives and specific interventions that will assist the client in making necessary behavioral changes to overcome his or her problematic symptoms.
I use many of the suggestions offered in the School Counseling and School Social Work Treatment Planner to formulate my initial diagnosis and treatment strategy and then often add my own interventions as the treatment progresses. This allows me to stay focused upon the specific goals of treatment while responding to the individual needs of the client and his/her unique situation and needs. I love the creativity that this process promotes and believe that it facilitates the client to overcome personal challenges and to perform more successfully within the family, school and community. Every clinician working with school-aged children needs this book in their office.

Format: Paperback
As a school counselor/therapist, I find that this planner bridges the divide between school counseling and psychotherapy. It is much more useful in a school setting than the Adolescent Treatment Planner as it is organized by presenting problem rather than DSM diagnosis (e.g. attention-seeking behavior, self-esteem building, sexual responsibility). However,DSM diagnostic suggestions are also included for each presenting problem. Treatment goals and interventions are clearly outlined and practical. Yes, some interventions are obvious, but there are dozens of additional interventions as well. In a school setting where time is limited, this book helps me quickly outline my treatment plan and stay focused so that I am working in a more efficient manner. This book has saved me a lot of time and helped me conceptualize school-based therapy in a more practical way.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In current times the individual counselor or social worker no longer has the autonomy they once had. They must strictly adhere to intervention guidelines set out for them in order to meet the "demands of HMOs, managed care companies, third-party payors, and state and federal agencies." If it seems like a tall order and daunting, it is. However, if we all have guidelines laid out for us in a book, we can not only have some wiggle room to independently formulate treatment plans while conforming to all the rules and regulations we must now follow. We've all had experience with goals and objectives whether on the job or in our personal lives, but step-by-step treatment planners such as this one make life infinitely easier.

Yes, you may say to yourself that you don't need a treatment planner, and perhaps you don't. You may be an experienced practitioner who knows the ins and outs of the system, but if you are new to school counseling or social work this book may be essential. Additionally, this would be a perfect text for graduate students to explore and incorporate into their curriculum. One of the first sentences in the introduction indicated to me the purpose of the book, reiterated the demand issues from outside parties that force "clinicians to quickly produce effective, high-quality treatment plans." If you have no outside forces pressuring you and don't need regimented treatment plans for your agency or IEP in the school setting you may wish to pass.

Although this text may seem somewhat simplistic in its layout, I only see that as a bonus. Who needs to pore over a complicated dense tome? In essence there are six progressive steps we need to look at:

1. Problem Selection

2. Problem Definition

3. Goal Development

4.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I use this workbook with kids in my practice because number one referral source for kids in therapy is the school! Therefore, I use this often to help out with interventions to stop or reduce problematic behaviors at school (angry out bursts, truancy, not following rules, etc). More importantly, because school social workers are often busy with IEPs, case management, etc., kids are usually getting minimal therapy there. Some of the interventions I have found broad enough to work with adolescents as well as my adults in my practice. I found it to be useful and thorough and often reference this book when I feel "stuck" with a client.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
THE SCHOOL COUNSELING AND SCHOOL SOCIAL WORK TREATMENT PLANNER is a well constructed work which purports to be a "timesaving resource," a claim with which I concur.

The "Sample Treatment Plan" in the book's Introduction (pp. 11-16) outlines the organization for each of the 33 treatment scenarios for specifically identified "behaviorally based presenting problems" covered by the book. Arranged alphabetically, the book begins with "Academic Motivation" and ends with "Teen Pregnancy." In between one finds coverage for problems such as "Depression," "Oppositional Defiant Disorder," "Poverty," and "Sibling Rivalry." For each situation, the book gives the same five breakdowns: Behavioral Definitions; Long-Term Goals; Short-Term Goals; Therapeutic Interventions (linked to the specific Short-Term Goals); and Diagnostic Suggestions (using DSM-IV-TR codes for further reference).

The bibliographic suggestions in the appendices are extensive and thorough (20 pages of references in Appendix A, Bibliotherapy Suggestions; 16 pages of references in Appendix B, Professional References for Evidence-Based Chapters).

Normally, I would fault a book for not having an index, but the overall quality of this work is excellent enough that I still give it 5 stars. This is a must buy for any practitioner (or their office), as well as for academic libraries at institutions with education and/or social work programs.
