Now in its sixth edition, The Child Psychotherapy Treatment Planner is an essential reference used by clinicians around the country to clarify, simplify, and accelerate the patient treatment planning process. The book allows practitioners to spend less time on paperwork to satisfy the increasingly stringent demands of HMOs, managed care companies, third-party payors, and state and federal agencies, and more time treating patients face-to-face.

The latest edition of this Treatment Planner offers accessible and easily navigable treatment plan components organised by behavioural problem and DSM-5 diagnosis. It also includes:

  • Newly updated treatment objectives and interventions supported by the best available research
  • New therapeutic games, workbooks, DVDs, toolkits, video, and audio to support treatment plans and improve patient outcomes
  • Fully revised content on gender dysphoria consistent with the latest guidelines, as well as a new chapter on disruptive mood dysregulation disorder and Bullying Victim

An invaluable resource for practising social workers, therapists, psychologists, and other clinicians who frequently treat children, The Child Psychotherapy Treatment Planner, Sixth Edition, is a timesaving, easy-to-use reference perfectly suited for busy practitioners who want to spend more time focused on their patients and less time manually composing the over 1000 pre-written treatment goals, objectives, and interventions contained within.
