    Review quote
    "Therapists from multiple mental health disciplines will find the Clinician's Thesaurus a useful resource in their practice. The book's value extends beyond helping you write professional reports - it will also guide you in providing a more precise and thorough assessment of your clients. In the classroom, the Clinician's Thesaurus would make a good adjunct text for a psychopathology course. The 7th edition makes greater use of Internet resources, among other nice additions." - Lee Williams, Marital and Family Therapy Program, University of San Diego, USA "This comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide provides the ABCs of conducting interviews and report writing in the mental health field. The 7th edition contains updated information, relevant websites, and many additional resources for both novices and senior clinicians. I plan to make this book required reading for all my practicum and intern students." - Dorothy Preston, psychologist, Phoenix, Arizona, USA
