Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MASTERING COMPETENCIES IN FAMILY THERAPY: THEORY-BASED ASSESSMENT provides a competency-based approach to teaching clinical skills in marriage and family therapy, an approach already adopted by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Using a light and inviting tone, Gehart offers a comprehensive five-step model for competent treatment which includes case conceptualization, clinical assessment (diagnosis) and case management, treatment planning, evaluation of progress, and documentation. The work also includes a set of useful clinical forms that can be applied in practice environments, as well as an introduction to the importance of theory and evidence-based practice in all five steps.
