This user-friendly guide will help the clinician develop Cognitive-Behavioral treatment plans for 11 common psychological disorders (e.g., major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety, borderline personality disorder, anger problems). Based on a problem-solving model and empirical literature, the authors focus on two major clinical tasks involved in this process: case formulation and treatment design. They delineate short-term goals, long-term goals, treatment targets, and potential interventions.
Appendices include "quick guides to CBT treatment planning" for the 11 disorders and selected major CBT clinical intervention strategies noted throughout the book.
"Case formulation represents one of the most essential aspects of effective therapeutic intervention. All good clinical work entails problem solving, and Arthur Nezu, Christine Maguth Nezu, and Elizabeth Lombardo have provided us with an approach to case formulation that is based on the available theory and research in problem solving. This comprehensive volume is an invaluable resource for the practicing clinician." Marvin R. Goldfried, PhD Department of Psychology State University of New York Stony Brook, NY; "Nezu, Nezu, and Lombardo have drawn on decades of scholarly work and presented an integrative model of case formulation based on a problem solving approach... The book offers students and practitioners organized, useful, and empirically guided strategies for case formulation and treatment design." Stephan N. Haynes, PhD Department of Psychology University of Hawaii Honolulu, HI"
