Abstract
"This text provides new clinicians with an overview of the tasks involved in behavioral health treatment as it is practiced in community-based training organizations. The text’s specific focus is on the application of theoretical and academic knowledge to clinical work as a psychotherapist or case manager, with a case example that follows treatment from the first session through termination. It contains an overview of all aspects of treatment that are required in these organizations, which are the primary settings for practicum, internship, and post-graduate training." ~ from the publisher
