This outstanding work is a comprehensive manual designed to help therapists develop behavioural treatment plans for virtually every adolescent client. The book covers all of the major diagnostic categories of DSM-IV, effectively translating the traditional psychiatric approach to mental disorders into behavioural terms readily understood by managed care case managers.
Forms are provided for monitoring payments, authorizations and report deadlines. Also included are full descriptions and symptom summaries of common adolescent mental disorders, a complete outline of long-term treatment objectives, measurable short-term behavioural goals and suggested interventions. The entire package will help you deal more quickly and easily with the requirements of managed care and optimize treatment authorizations.
This book is the third in a series of treatment guides by Dr Warren. It belongs on the desk of every practitioner who deals with adolescents.
