All of the Homework Planners, Treatment Planners, and Progress Notes Planners by Jongsma et al. are incredible tools! I am in my Masters program, and I have used these books over and over and over--especially in the 2nd year of my Masters Counseling Program. I cannot say enough about this group of texts. First, let me say that the books seem to follow Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques most, but I find it easy to tweak the exercises, etc., to fit other therapies, not to mention the fact that there are suggestions that run a gamut of different ideologies.

Past that, I love the fact that the TREATMENT PLANNERS offer "Short-Term Objectives," "Long-Term Goals," and "Therapeutic Interventions." It also gives some of the common "Behavioral Definitions" for each diagnosis and leaves plenty of room for notes. One of the absolute most helpful tools is that it lists "Diagnostic Suggestions" or differential diagnosis for each category along with the DSM-5 and DSM-4 code numbers.

The HOMEWORK PLANNERS offer exercises in the form of handouts that clients can take home. The questions for each diagnoses are relevant, open-ended, and made to enhance critical thinking about the symptoms/issues/situations clients may be facing.

The PROGRESS NOTES PLANNERS use professional language that is easy to understand, while at the same time specific and relevant.

If I were going to be seeing several different ages of clients, etc., and if I was just starting my library of Jongsma et al. Planners, I would start with the Adult Psychotherapy Treatment Planner, The Group Therapy Treatment Planner, and the Adolescent Therapy Treatment Planner and work my way down from there. I would not (and am not) going to stop until I have them all because, for example, the Adult Psychotherapy Treatment Planner does cover marital infidelity, but the Couples Therapy Treatment Planner goes into so much more detail; therefore, these books are great from so many angles!! Anyway, I could on and on, but I will stop there except to say, you won't go wrong with these!
Very useful to the course work. Best in conjunction with treatment planner
The group homework planner did not include a CD-rom, but an outdated Diskette. You cannot print out the homework assignments.
i love this book, although i am not a therapist i wish my therapist would have givin me this homework so that i could feel like i'm getting somewhere instead of just spinning my wheels. i love that it has the disk with all the wookbook pages, i use it for myself and for people in my online suport group. the book that i got had a 3.5" disk and it was confusing to have to use my very old computer to traspher the data to my new computer without a 3.5" drive. you can contact me if you run into this problom too. it has a nice coverage of topics. i just wish it went more indepth with some things, but it is a good starting point for everyone looking to improve their life. i also like that the documents werre editable unlike the simular book for personal therapy
