The Second Edition of Alan M. Schwitzer and Lawrence C. Rubin’s Diagnosis and Treatment Planning Skills: A Popular Culture Casebook Approach comprehensively addresses the clinical thinking skills required in professional counseling settings through the innovative use of case examples drawn from popular culture. Fully revised to include DSM-5, the text begins with discussion of diagnosis, case conceptualization, and treatment planning, covering the interplay of individual clinical tools and their application in contemporary practice. Ten DSM-5 updated case illustrations follow, creating a streamlined new edition that engages students in a start-to-finish application of clinical tools.
This site includes an additional 20 cases from the first edition, now updated for DSM-5.
Excellent book, explains well all the concepts to the students and provides applicable case studies.
