Editorial Reviews

Review

"The writing style is engaging. The material is presented in a concise manner. The essential ideas for each theoretical model are presented well. The chapters are organized in a readable and logical manner. There is a nice flow from topic to topic." "The content of the book goes far in accomplishing its purpose of bringing together theory and practice in the planning phase of therapy. The book is likely to be a best seller."

"The strength of the proposed text lies in the vignettes and treatment plans noted for each theory discussed. The vignettes become powerful components for how the reader might conceptualize theory to practice. The author paid great attention to how the reader might conceptualize each vignette from a systems perspective while working with an individual, couple, and family."

" I would describe this manuscript as a very straightforward, logically organized, succinct, well integrated text." "First, it presents the main marriage and family theories clearly and succinctly. Second, it emphasizes the treatment planning process. While the manuscript is very pragmatic it also demonstrates critical thinking about the cases and I see this as a definite strength."

Format: Paperback
This book is tailored for California MFTs. It covers the major theories that are presently in use. It gives clear vignettes and has excellent treatment goals for each stage of therapy. It is a necessity to have this book when studying for the Standard Written and Written Clinical Vignette exams.

I used this book instead of the required reading for my Theories and Techniques one and two classes. This book not only covers theories, it has treatment plans (yes treatment plans) and vignettes for each theory and it covered all the phases of goals (early, middle and late phases). It's so thin, I carry it with me when seeing client's, it's very helpful when I'm doing my treatment plans!

This textbook was recommended by my professor, and I find it a good tool for therapists who are looking for very basic theoretical information on the various therapies for families out there. Good examples and vignettes make its application simpler.

Good for beginners.

Theory-Based Treatment Planning was a very useful tool in studying for my California MFT exam. My four star rating is based solely on the omission of a psychodynamic approach to therapy covered in the state exam.

Excellent book for preparation for California Clinical Vingette exam. The theories are broken down into clear and concise segments. Goals and interventions are clearly differentiated and the exercises were very helpful. I recommended this book to supervising colleagues who incorporated the material into their supervision of their interns. I wish we had this book in my graduate studies, it would have improved my treatment planning skills during my internships. I have recommended this book to others preparing for both the written and vignette exams. They each believed it was more than a worthwill investment.

This book is great. I wish I had this in grad school. I used this book to study for my first MFT exam and it was very helpful. Love the practicality of it. I am now using it to brush up for the second exam and telling all my intern friends to buy and use this book to study.
