Basic info in a little book
on June 1, 2012
The majority of therapists should already know the information in this book.
You will need this book if:
a) you just finished your masters degree and sometimes need a refesher
b) you have worked as a therapist with only 1 type of population/Tx modality for many years and now have to change population/Tx modalities.
c) you have not worked as a therapist for several years.
I feel that the information in this book is basic knowledge to anyone with a Masters education. The intervention and multicultural information is lacking. The drug section is good, however, there is a Pocket Psych Drugs that does the job much better. Everything else about the book is just review. I tried to compensate my purchase by saying I could show my clients pages of the book to help them understand a concept, but it really is not useful for that either.
