Read an Excerpt


The practice of psychotherapy has a dimension that did not exist 30, 20, or even 15 years ago--accountability. Treatment programs, public agencies, clinics, and even group and solo practitioners must now justify the treatment of patients to outside review entities that control the payment of fees. This development has resulted in an explosion of paperwork.

Clinicians must now document what has been done in treatment, what is planned for the future, and what the anticipated outcomes of the interventions are. The books and software in this PracticePlanners series are designed to help practitioners fulfill these documentation requirements efficiently and professionally.

The PracticePlanners series is growing rapidly. It now includes not only the original Complete Adult Psychotherapy Treatment Planner, third edition; The Child Psychotherapy Treatment Planner, third edition; and The Adolescent Psychotherapy Treatment Planner, third edition, but also Treatment Planners targeted to specialty areas of practice, including: addictions, juvenile justice/residential care, couples therapy, employee assistance, behavioral medicine, therapy with older adults, pastoral counseling, family therapy, group therapy, neuropsychology, therapy with gays and lesbians, special education, school counseling, and more.

Several of the Treatment Planner books now have companion Progress Notes Planners (e.g., Adult, Adolescent, Child, Addictions, Severe and Persistent Mental Illness). More of these planners that provide a menu of progress statements that elaborate on the client's symptompresentation and the provider's therapeutic intervention are in production. Each Progress Notes Planner statement is directly integrated with "Behavioral Definitions" and "Therapeutic Interventions" items from the companion Treatment Planner.

The list of therapeutic Homework Planners is also growing from the original Brief Therapy Homework for adults to Adolescent, Child, Couples, Group, Family, Chemical Dependence, Divorce, Grief, Employee Assistance, and School Counseling/School Social Work Homework Planners. Each of these books can be used alone or in conjunction with their companion Treatment Planner. Homework assignments are designed around each presenting problem (e.g., Anxiety, Depression, Chemical Dependence, Anger Management, Panic, Eating Disorders) that is the focus of a chapter in its corresponding Treatment Planner).

Client Education Handout Planners, a new branch in the series, provides brochures and handouts to help educate and inform adult, child, adolescent, couples, and family clients on a myriad of mental health issues, as well as life skills techniques. Handouts are included on CD-ROMs and are ideal for use in waiting rooms, at presentations, or as newsletters.

In addition, the series also includes TheraScribe ®, the latest version of the popular treatment planning, clinical record-keeping software. TheraScribe allows the user to import the data from any of the Treatment Planner, Progress Notes Planner, or Homework Planner books into the software's expandable database. Then the point-and-click method can create a detailed, neatly organized, individualized, and customized treatment plan along with optional integrated progress notes and homework assignments.

Adjunctive books, such as The Psychotherapy Documentation Primer, and Clinical, Forensic, Child, Couples and Family, Continuum of Care, and Chemical Dependence Documentation Sourcebook contain forms and resources to aid the mental health practice management. The goal of the series is to provide practitioners with the resources they need in order to provide high-quality care in the era of accountability--or, to put it simply, we seek to help you spend more time on patients, and less time on paperwork.

An Interview with Arthur E. Jongsma Jr.

Question: How did the original Adult Psychotherapy Treatment Planner come about?

Arthur E. Jongsma Jr.: In 1993, I consulted for the Salvation Army Turning Point chemical dependence treatment program. JCAHO reviewers had been critical of the treatment plan documents being produced. They flagged lack of uniform quality, deficits in problem definitions, low measurability of objectives, and ambiguous interventions as issues.

I worked with the clinical director of the program, Mark Peterson, MSW, to develop a menu of treatment plan components for common presenting problems in that client population. The clinical and quality assurance staff eagerly embraced this lexicon and organization, finding that it dramatically cut the time they had to invest groping for words, yet enabled them to create high-quality, customized treatment plans. This guidebook was expanded to include general mental health issues and was published as The Complete Psychotherapy Treatment Planner. Little did I know then that this single guidebook to help mental health professionals would turn into a series of over 45 books as well as software!

Q.: What have you enjoyed most about working on the PracticePlanners® series?

AEJ: It is satisfying to hear both graduate students and seasoned therapists praise the contribution these books have made to their training and practice. Also, as the series has evolved, I've had the honor of collaborating with very knowledgeable experts in specialized fields such as addictions, couples and family therapy, group therapy, and gerontology. Working with these specialists has helped me broaden my own clinical skills.

Q: The bestselling status of the series certainly points to it being an unusually useful tool for therapists. Why do you think that is?

AEJ: The breadth and depth of the Treatment Planners content is unparalleled in the professional marketplace. We have tapped the resources of experts with many different treatment populations and treatment approaches. And when Treatment Planners are integrated with Progress Notes Planners, Homework Planners, and Documentation Sourcebooks, it gives mental health professionals a complete package of timesaving tools for comprehensive treatment planning and clinical record management.

Q: What is ahead for you and the series?

AEJ: We recently launched a new line of books, Progress Notes Planners, that are a natural extension of the Treatment Planners: helping mental health professionals continue to save time while not compromising patient or client care.

When I'm not collaborating on the books, I'm continuing in my private practice, and putting together a wish list of new projects for the series! Which reminds me, the chance to exchange ideas with colleagues is another thing I've greatly enjoyed about working on the series. I'd love to get more feedback and suggestions from mental health professionals.

Dr. Arthur E. Jongsma Jr. heads an independent group practice in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He serves as coauthor of most of the books in the PracticePlanners® series.
