"In [this book], Zubernis and Snyder provide counselors-in-training and beginning counselors alike with an excellent resource to assist them in accurately diagnosing and treating clients using current approaches proven to be effective at bringing about change. Through their guided presentation of mental disorders most often encountered by professional counselors, Zubernis and Snyder bridge the gap between theory and practice and prepare counselors to effectively work with diverse client populations."
“This text will help transform how we teach and provide skill development [and] professional identity for our students in the 21st century.”
Excellent case studies with excellent examples of case conceptualizations
Zubernis and Snyder give good descriptions of the diagnoses in the DSM categories (though I wish all DSM diagnosis categories will be covered in the next edition). The treatment considerations in the chapters are also helpful for students to start to learn about treatment planning for clients with specific presenting concerns and symptoms.
Highly informative and practical guide, great exercises to supports both students and practitioners. A must read!
