Now in its Second Edition, MASTERING COMPETENCIES IN FAMILY THERAPY: A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO THEORY AND CLINICAL CASE DOCUMENTATION is one of the first textbooks designed to teach the majority of skills and knowledge outlined in the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) Core Competencies. Using a light and inviting tone, author Diane R. Gehart engages students while providing a comprehensive five-step model for competent treatment. The model guides students in case conceptualization, clinical assessment (diagnosis) and case management, treatment planning, evaluation of progress, and documentation. The book also includes an introduction to the importance of theory and evidence-based practice in all five steps, and a set of useful clinical forms that can be applied in practice environments.
