Overview

As the counseling field enters its second century, students and professionals face more challenges than ever before. Linda Seligman's essential text Diagnosis and Treatment Planning in Counseling has evolved as well, and this third edition synthesizes the latest developments with the spectrum of counseling interventions to create a vital source of practical, up-to-date information. The author recognizes clinicians' varied roles -- mentor, mediator, teacher, coach -- and keeps them all in focus, assuring her readers of more effective treatment for clients and steadier footing on their own career paths. A worthy addition to any counselor education program, this important volume is equally useful to both beginning and seasoned counselors, whether the setting is the psychiatric clinic, the school, or the rehab center. Seligman clearly sets out the concepts and strategies the reader needs to know to be the flexible, proactive counselor of today -- and tomorrow.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

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.
