Clinical Pearls of Wisdom : 21 Leading Therapists Offer Their Key Insights


Here, for your reading and clinical pleasure, is a book that contains just these clinical "pearls" of wisdom, from the field's leading practitioners.

Represented in this collection is the "take-away" message from some of the most popular conference presenters active in the field today. It covers a rich range of perspectives on the most common presenting problems: depression, trauma, anxiety, grief, couples issues, and child and adolescent difficulties. Each entry follows a similar 3-part format. First is the pearls, a brief listing of three clinical pearls based on feedback the author has received over the years from colleagues, students, book reviewers, and workshop participants. Next is the case example, a presentation of a case that best exemplifies the "pearls" in action. This section also includes an analysis by the author-why they did what they did and what they thought about it then, and now. Finally, each author provides a series of concluding remarks about the preceding material and offers readers a sense of their thinking behind their clinical work, and how this approach might be integrated into other people's client work. These innovative practices and tools will enlarge your therapeutic repertoire, and complement your existing knowledge base.
