CASE DOCUMENTATION IN COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY teaches counselors and psychotherapists how to apply counseling theories in real-world settings. Written in a clear, down-to-earth style, the text provides a comprehensive introduction to case documentation using four commonly used clinical forms: case conceptualization, clinical assessment, treatment plan, and progress note. These documents incorporate counseling theory and help new practitioners understand how to use theory in everyday practice. Case studies illustrate how to complete documentation using each of seven counseling models. Readers also learn about the evidence base for each theory as well as applications for specific populations. Designed to produce measurable results that have value beyond the classroom, the text employs learning-centered, outcome-based pedagogy to engage students in an active learning process. Its case documentation assignments-created using national standards-help students apply concepts and develop professional skills early on in their training. When students become practicing mental health professionals they can use this book-with its practical overviews of theories, conceptualization, treatment planning, and documentation-as a clinical reference manual.

"This book focuses on students, a pragmatic approach to treatment, regard for multidisciplinary perspectives, and respect for the influence of families on clients. Chapter 1 identifies concerns that new therapists frequently have, such as building confidence in their clinical work. Chapters 2-6 follow the usual time sequence of therapy--from initial contact with clients, to comprehensive assessment, to treatment planning and intervention. Chapters 7-10 deal with specific clinical situations based on presenting problems and the nature of client families. We examine major issues and approaches for working with children and adolescents, older adults, couples, and families that are struggling with serious mental illness. Chapter 11 highlights some common obstacles all therapists encounter, and provides concrete ideas on how to get unstuck when treatment is not progressing. Chapter 12 focuses on an often overlooked part of therapy--termination. In Chapter 13, we conclude the book by looking at emerging issues within family therapy"--

"Supervision plays a central role in the clinical training of mental health professionals. In Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach (American Psychological Association, 2004), Falender and Shafranske created a comprehensive resource for the supervision of mental health practitioners. In this companion casebook, the editors have enlisted an elite group of contributors to help make the leap from theory and research to the real-life, hands-on implementation of the elements of successful supervision. With expert commentary and detailed excerpts from actual supervisory sessions, the authors describe supervision as process--the process of becoming competent, the process of psychotherapy, and the process of developing as a supervisor. The supervision relationship is examined in detail, and supervision tools are included to help supervisors implement best practices within a competency-based framework. Whether used alone or in conjunction with the earlier volume, the Casebook for Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach will be the standard resource for supervisory competence for years to come"--Jacket.
