Summary

Many training programs assume that if students receive separate courses in research design, assessment, and counseling, they will naturally integrate this information into their work with clients. Unfortunately this mode of science-practice integration often fails. Bridging Case Conceptualization, Assessment, and Intervention presents a new approach to the integration of science and practice in clinical work. Author Scott T. Meier systematically connects case conceptualization, assessment, and analysis of intervention effects. This integrative approach differs from traditional methods of teaching counseling in its emphasis on the inclusion of assessment data in the intervention process. This innovative, transtheoretical volume examines Key elements of conceptualization, assessment, and analysis The role of structured feedback in the clinical process Outcome elements for multiple and selected problems Assessment methods and psychometric principles Graphical, qualitative, and quantitative analytic techniques Numerous case studies Possible future directions for science-practice efforts Bridging Case Conceptualization, Assessment, and Intervention provides an effective method for thinking about, organizing, and focusing on the key elements of counseling processes and outcomes. By integrating case conceptualization and assessment data into intervention decisions, students and clinicians will understand when and why counseling is ineffective and have a basis for adjusting treatment to improve clinical outcomes. With its emphasis on concepts and procedure, Bridging Case Conceptualization, Assessment, and Intervention is intended as a manual for students in psychology, psychiatry, social work, or counseling and practicing psychotherapists, psychiatrists, or counselors.
