Overview

No matter how well prepared and trained in theoretical aspects of psychotherapy, nascent clinicians experience considerable uncertainty in conceptualizing their cases and developing effective treatment regimens. Very often, they feel overwhelmed by clients who do not present symptoms that are described in standard textbook fashion. Indeed, they find that inevitably there are concurrent diagnoses and treatments and numerous unanticipated treatment issues. Students also quickly learn in this era of accountability and managed care that time efficiency in dealing with clients is an imperative. Through the presentation of comprehensive information drawn from interactions with clinical students in practice, field placements, internships and residencies over several decades, Effective Brief Therapies: A Clinician's Guide is devoted to facilitating the understanding of strategies for approaching cases, conducting viable assessments, and implementing contemporary therapies.
