- A unique workbook design, which provides ample space to record customized goals, objectives, and interventions
Developed by two veteran practitioners and fully "battle tested," the treatment planning system found in this book will enhance the quality of your clinical documentation, bring heightened focus to the treatment process, and eliminate the problem of vague treatment plans, which are often rejected by insurers and health management organizations.
