Overview

Diagnosis and treatment planning are essential tools for counselors of the 21st century and have become integrated into all counseling roles and efforts. The third edition of this book takes a broad perspective of diagnosis and treatment planning and provides up-to-date information to help counselors and other mental health professionals develop skills to advance their own professional development and effectively help their clients. Chapters from the previous editions have been completely revised to reflect the latest developments in counseling including new roles and opportunities for counselors, information from the current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), up-to-date information on treatment interventions and effectiveness, new and revised inventories for both school and mental health counselors, and predictions for the future of the field. The chapter on group counseling has been expanded and two new chapters have been added to the book, one on Counseling for Career and Organizational Development and one on Ethical and Professional Development for Counselors. Highlights of Diagnosis and Treatment Planning, Third Edition include: Information on the evolution of the counseling profession including its history, new roles and employment opportunities for counselors, changing client groups, professional associations and credentials for counselors, and the impact of managed care on the profession; A thorough review of the DSM, including strategies for making a multiaxial assessment; Important assessment tools, including intake interviews, mental status examinations, and the selection, administration, and interpretation of both qualitative and quantitative inventories; A comprehensive, clear, and structured approach to treatment planning, the DO A CLIENT MAP; Treatment approaches and strategies for individual, family, group, career, and organizational counseling; Models and examples of counsel

Editorial Reviews

Peter B. Zeldow
This book consists of 11 chapters concerned with psychiatric diagnosis, intake interviewing, treatment planning, and theories and techniques of individual counseling, family counseling, and group counseling. The changing nature of mental health counseling and future trends are also discussed. The purpose of the book ""is to help counselors and other mental health professionals to acquire up-to-date information on diagnosis and treatment planning and to develop related clinical skills that are essential to their effectiveness."" The book is intended primarily for graduate students in counselor education programs, although it provides valuable information for all mental health counseling students and practitioners. The author is a leading academician, writer, editor, and practitioner in the field of counseling psychology. The references are extensive and up-to-date, and the index is especially detailed. A special feature is an appendix consisting of a series of tables providing key questions for a counselor to ask to facilitate the making of a DSM-IV diagnosis. This excellent introductory text will be an informative reference for counseling students. The information is accurate, the clinical advice sound, the examples plentiful. Depth of coverage is necessarily sacrificed for breadth. The changes in the field of counseling and in psychiatric diagnosis over the last ten years more than justify this new edition.
