This book is well written and easy to read. I am a 5 year MSW social worker and just purchased this book. It has given me a better understanding of the DSM-IV-TR and is an invaluable professional resource. It will be exceptionally helpful as I prepare to study for my LCSW exam. This book is worth every cent!

I highly recommend this guide to my students/ interns. It helps you understand the most appropriate treatments and interventions for the most common diagnoses that a Marriage and Family Therapist typically encounters. This is a great adjunct resource to the DSM.

This text is a strong overview of basic treatment planning for mental disorders covered by the DSM, and it's one to keep.

This book is amazing, it brought home things that I knew and learned in school, but the book explained it more clearly.

This is a great book. It is my textbook for a graduate course. This is well written and clear and gives you a chapter on the DSM-5 changes.

Good foundation for treatment planning for beginning students and clinicians. Easy read but does not address uodates from thr DSM V at this point.

I needed this book for my diagnosis class. I'm glad I bought it rather than rented it because it's a book that will come in handy in my career.

Extremely valuable book! This is one of the cheapest books I've bought for my counseling career, but is by FAR the most practical and helpful. Thank you Seligman and Reichenberg for giving those of us in the profession something that is such a great resource at such a reasonable price. I have and will continue to use this book OFTEN.
