Transdiagnostic Road Map to Case Formulation and Treatment Planning: Practical Guidance for Clinical Decision Making
Author(s): JOAN ROCHELLE & DAVIDSON FRANK
For the last twenty years, clinicians and mental health professionals have relied on the DSM manual to diagnose and treat patients. However, evidence now shows that treating individual symptoms, rather than relying on a single diagnosis, is much more effective. If you are frustrated with single symptom protocols when treating your clients, this book offers a powerful alternative to the DSM-V. The Transdiagnostic Road Map to Case Formulation and Treatment Planning is the first book to offer the psychology community a breakthrough, evidence-based road map for treating patients with symptoms that span across different diagnostic categories. The transdiagnostic approach outlined in this book signals a revolutionary break from traditional DSM categorization and gives mental health professionals a reliable resource for treating clients' individual symptoms, rather than relying on rigid pathology. If you are interested in a new approach to treating patients, this book is an extremely important addition to your professional library. It will serve as your guide for a more effective type of treatment planning-one that is tailored to your client's specific needs.

"This book will raise your game. Frank and Davidson's "The Transdiagnostic Road Map to Case Formulation and Treatment Planning" is extraordinarily practical. Their research summaries on transdiagnostic mechanisms and easy-to-use formulation and treatment planning worksheets will make your work smarter and more efficient. A fantastic book for students, yet sophisticated enough for the experienced practitioner who works with multi-problem clients." --Kelly Koerner, PhD, author of "Doing Dialectical Behavior Therapy"
