Clinical and Counseling Practice offers integrated coverage of diagnosis, treatment planning, and ethical and legal aspects of clinical practice, demonstrating their application to clinical cases.

This text is a concise, case-based resource that distills coursework and supervision cases into a single, readily accessible volume. Assuming a basic knowledge of abnormal psychology and the theories of psychotherapy, Clinical and Counseling Practice addresses the most common issues that beginning clinicians and counselors face.

The key strategy of this text is to simplify common situations by using a format that includes three elements: immediate concerns, short-term goals, and long-term goals.


  • Uses a standard format for treatment plans with three elements to help students focus on the essentials of clinical situations.
  • Offers examples for every clinical concern throughout the text to highlight issues early in students' training.
  • Integrates the most important aspects of working with clients by using concrete clinical material to help students understand how textbook material is applicable to real-life clinical situations.
