This unique sourcebook provides a comprehensive collection of over 100 concise, informative handouts for distribution to your current or prospective clients.

    I love this book!

    In my many years of practice I've never seen anything to compare with this book. It contains meticulously researched, concise articles which clients will find easy to read and utilize as a part of therapy. I was impressed with the range of visual aids, assessment tools and progress charts contained in the book. I have found that my clients develop a better understanding of their problems and begin to work on change more quickly when I give them these handouts at the beginning of therapy. The range of problems covered in this book is so comprehensive that I've been able to find at least one handout that is appropriate for each of my clients. I find the disk format especially helpful. With it I'm able to quickly print exactly what I want, and I can personalize the handouts any way that I like. I think this is a great resource for both therapists and clients!
