    I found the book to be slightly outdated. I would, at minimum, conduct a search of other books on the same topic before purchasing this one.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! This book has answered so many of my questions. I only wish it had been available and I had read it years ago. I have struggled as a master’s level professional with documentation and termninology, the treatment plans, and how this all matters when it comes to mangaged care etc. Much of my training was on the job and well meaning co-workers did not have the time or ability to explain it to me. Like so many, this course was not taught. I have started my own practice and I feel much more confident thanks to The Psychoterapy Documentation Primer. Can you recommend something similar for Substance Abuse or Addictions? Your Book was worth every penny!

    This is a fantastic book/ reference for anyone going into a private practice. Good record keeping is key in any practice. This is the goto reference and guide for mental health documentation and reporting requirements.

    This book is well organized, simple and comprehensive. Highly recommend. If you have the previous edition, the update is definitely worthwhile.
