Saves you hours of painstaking paperwork, while providing optimum latitude in developing customized treatment plans for marital and couples problems

Organized around 31 major presenting problems, from jealousy, to midlife crisis, to parenting conflicts, to sexual abuse, it features:

  • More than 1,000 well-crafted statements to choose from, describing behavioral manifestations, long- and short-term goals, and treatment options
  • A sample plan that can be emulated in writing plans that meet all requirements of third-party payers and accrediting agencies, including the JCAHO
  • A presenting problem list that includes all relevant DSM-IV categories
  • A quick-reference format--allows you to locate treatment plan components by behavioral problem or DSM-IV diagnosis
  • Large workbook-style pages affording plenty of space to record your own customized goals, objectives, and interventions
