Book Description

November 8, 2011 0470889004 978-0470889008 4
A systematic, research-based approach to the diagnosis and treatment of the major mental disorders found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Linda Seligman's classic book, Selecting Effective Treatments combines the latest research on evidence-based practices with practical, how-to information on implementation.

Filled with numerous illustrative case studies and helpful examples, this Fourth Edition features expanded coverage of:

  • Trauma and its effect across the lifespan, suicide assessment and prevention, and new treatment approaches, including mindfulness

  • Childhood disorders, including autism spectrum disorders, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and attachment disorder

  • Grief, loss, and bereavement

  • Diagnosis and treatment of depression, borderline personality disorder, the schizophrenia spectrum disorders, and the bipolar disorders

With a new discussion of treatment strategies for dual diagnosis, Selecting Effective Treatments, Fourth Edition provides a pathway for treatment of mental disorders based on the most recent evidence-based research, while at the same time recognizing that the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders are part of a dynamic and evolving field that embraces individuality and personalization.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource! February 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful guide for LMFT's October 28, 2011
Format:Paperback
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 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.

I would have liked to have known in advance that there were two versions of this 4th Edition before paying the price for a new book. The cover of the newer version is nearly identical with the descriptor at the top of the cover that says it contains updated DSM 5 contents. It should have been marketed as a revised 4th Edition so that a consumer might be aware of the difference. It would have been nice if Amazon would have let me know instead of informing me after I purchased it and labeled it. I feel a bit scammed. I feel that the publisher should have offered a supplement to be purchased containing the new chapter and preface material. I purchased this for a class and it has put me at a disadvantage due to the missing material.
The newer version, still titled 4th Edition, contains both a preface to DSM 5 as well as a whole new Chapter 11 which pertains to DSM 5 changes--something that I will need in the future. The book content is great, except that new material is missing in this edition which was just published in 2012.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, But Outdated
This is a good book, however, it's outdated for the DSM. This book bases diagnosis off of the DSM IV TR, and this year they began using the DSM V in the medical field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book
This book is very easy to read, understand and follow. It explains the concepts clearly and in depth. My only complaint is how long the individual chapters are; very, very long.
