Reviews

"Clinician's Thesaurus gives the reader a wealth of information about conducting clinical assessments and writing reports. Zuckerman walks the reader through every step of the assessment and writing process, providing state-of-the-art advice for how to summarize and describe clinical findings. The eighth edition of this 'must-read' volume belongs on the shelf of anyone conducting mental health assessments."--David F. Tolin, PhD, ABPP, Director, Anxiety Disorders Center, The Institute of Living-Hartford Hospital

"This book not only offers one of the best ways for a new clinician to become immersed in the lexicon of the mental health profession, but is also the definitive resource for writing reports. It is an ideal text for graduate courses focusing on assessment, diagnosis, report writing, forensic reporting, and treatment planning. This one of the core books that clinicians will want to keep close at hand throughout their careers."--Sean D. Davis, PhD, LMFT, Couple and Family Therapy Program, Alliant International University

"The eighth edition of Zuckerman's Thesaurus is chock-full of resources that every clinician and trainee across mental health fields will find helpful on a daily basis. It is an essential guide for assessment, report writing, and record keeping. This book is so much more than one would expect. It provides a broad range of tips for conducting assessments, helps clinicians to sharpen their writing style, gives advice on complex situations (such as when a client is not being truthful during an evaluation), and highlights words to avoid in assessments and report writing. It includes extremely helpful reference lists and has links throughout to further assessment measures and resources."--Deborah Roth Ledley, PhD, private practice, Plymouth Meeting and Narberth, Pennsylvania

"The Thesaurus is invaluable for teaching students sound diagnostic practices, and is an important tool for professionals who need to communicate critical information to patients and colleagues. The eighth edition's content reflects the latest advances in clinical thinking. Key essential terms are provided that help clinicians conduct effective interviews and describe diagnostic, behavioral, and person-in-environment impressions. I recommend the Thesaurus for use with graduate students in counseling, clinical, or school psychology who have a foundation in diagnosis and assessment and are preparing to work with clients."--Sherri Turner, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Minnesota Twin Cities
