CASE DOCUMENTATION IN COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY teaches counselors and psychotherapists how to apply counseling theories in real-world settings. Written in a clear, down-to-earth style, the text provides a comprehensive introduction to case documentation using four commonly used clinical forms: case conceptualization, clinical assessment, treatment plan, and progress note. These documents incorporate counseling theory and help new practitioners understand how to use theory in everyday practice. Case studies illustrate how to complete documentation using each of seven counseling models. Readers also learn about the evidence base for each theory as well as applications for specific populations. More than a text, this book can be used as a clinical reference manual by mental health professionals, providing practical overviews of theories, conceptualization, treatment planning, and documentation.
Designed to produce measurable results that have value beyond the classroom, the text employs learning-centered, outcome-based pedagogy to engage students in an active learning process. Its case documentation assignments-created using national standards-help students apply concepts and develop professional skills early on in their training. Instructors are supported by syllabi templates, PowerPoint® slides, test banks, online lectures, scoring rubrics designed for accreditation assessment, and more.
