Seligman, Linda : George Mason University
George Mason University, and Center for Counseling and Consultation, Fairfax, VA, USA
''The second edition is even better than the first. this relatively compact book provides the mental health worker with a wealth of information regarding the professional delivery of counseling services. The book's chapters expound upon the changing role of the counselor, opportunities for counselors, and future trends and projections.
In Chapter 3, Seligman does an excellent job of outlining diagnostic systems and their use. She clearly explains the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed., DSM-IV) and discusses the limitations of the DSM-IV. The most helpful part addresses the disorders found in the DSM-IV, which includes 17 very broad categories. Treatment planning is the other cornerstone of this book. it is the process of plotting out the counseling process so that both counselor and client have a road map that delineates how they will proceed, allowing progress to be measured and providing a sense of structure.
Seligman does an excellent job of outlining the steps in making a diagnosis and writing a suitable treatment plan. At the end of most chapters she provides exercises that allow readers to check their level of comprehension. She also devotes considerable attention to the topics of intake interviewing and includes an appendix of key questions that facilitate diagnosis. In addition, readers are introduced to theories of individual, group and family counseling. While this book cannot inform the reader of all aspects of counseling, it is quite comprehensive and a good reference for anyone who works in a treatment setting.''
