From the Publisher"A well referenced, case- based guide to using a competency based approach to clinical work. The cases are excellent and serve to illustrate the various approaches one can use to apply this model. Each chapter provides a balanced approach to the utility of the Competency Based Model; its advantages, disadvantages, and cultural and community considerations. The writing style is reader friendly, the cases are poignant and described with sensitivity yet candid disclosure. The use of Practitioner Reflections at the end of each chapter are thoughtful and provide useful approaches to exploring the model. I liked the insertion of additional readings and websites - very helpful."
"This book integrates practice theories and some of the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic categories. The book gives clear, concise overviews of DSM-IV-TR disorders and background information important to understanding the disorders. There are detailed case examples for each class of disorders. There is a practice reflections section at the end of each chapter that is quite helpful in mastering the chapter content. The references are extensive, current and reflect the latest knowledge and research related to the disorders discussed. There is a listing of relevant internet sites. There is a good introductory chapter that summarizes relevant practice theories and gives interesting information about the history of the theories."
