"Amid today's flood of books and cacophony of webinars and podcasts, Frank and Davidson's sage advice stands out in this unique text on transdiagnostic road maps. This book is well written with clinical acumen and a solid link to the empirical literature on comorbidity. It should be required reading for all students, clinicians, and researchers in the field. I highly recommend it!"
--Frank M. Dattilio, PhD, ABPP, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA
"Follow this road map and you will likely never need to consult another 'how to conceptualize my treatment approach' map again! This volume moves the promise of transdiagnostic practice into the realm of possibility by showing how the latest research on transdiagnostic mechanisms informs individualized, case formulation-driven approaches to treatment planning, implementation, and assessment. Rochelle Frank and Joan Davidson have written a very timely, important, and useful book that will be of use to clinicians, researchers, and students of mental health. Anyone who is interested in understanding how the latest research on mechanisms that cut across diagnostic boundaries can inform a practical, evidence-based guide to treatment will benefit from reading this book."
--Ann Kring, PhD, vice chair and professor of psychology at University of California, Berkeley, and president of the Society for Research in Psychopathology
"This book is the first clinically accessible attempt to use transdiagnostic research to create a powerful new form of functional analysis: one that is specific, testable, replicable, and modifiable. As the DSM-V stumbles, this book presents the exciting possibility that we now have enough transdiagnostic knowledge to create a categorization system that will help practitioners select interventions based on their usefulness in targeting identified processes of change. The details could be mistaken, but this is a bold and creative step forward that deserves the attention of practitioners and researchers alike."
--Steven C. Hayes, PhD, foundation professor and director of clinical training at University of Nevada and cofounder of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
"How cognitive behavioral therapists need this book! Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is in a transitional phase. There is increasing focus on transdiagnostic processes and process mechanisms such as avoidance, ruminative thinking, and anxiety sensitivity that underpin many of the problems we see clinically. But up until now, no one has really put this together in a coherent 'how to' form for clinicians. These authors have done it! The book is rich in illustrative examples and helpful ways to think about CBT interventions. I found myself constantly stimulated, as well as challenged, to make adaptations to my approach as a CBT therapist."
--James Bennett-Levy, PhD, associate professor at the University of Sydney and coeditor of the Oxford Guide to Behavioural Experiments in Cognitive Therapy and the Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy
"The Transdiagnostic Road Map to Case Formulation and Treatment Planning by Frank and Davidson is an excellent guide to implementing state-of-the-art cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Their review of the key processes and mechanisms underlying disorders and innovative use of case conceptualization will give the clinician valuable tools to use with clients [suffering from] a wide range of difficulties. I highly recommend this excellent book to any therapist interested in going beyond simple diagnosis."
--Robert L. Leahy, PhD, director at the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy
"In this engaging book, the authors provide a comprehensive array of transdiagnostic mechanisms, review the evidence for these mechanisms, and link these mechanisms to a transdiagnostic model that provides the basis of individualized case formulation and treatment. The strength of this approach is that it allows a guiding framework for incorporating strategies from different diagnostic protocols when there are currently few evidence supported treatments for comorbidity. ... I would highly recommend this book to any professional working with clients with comorbid disorders who is interested in a practical, integrated transdiagnostic approach to treatment."
--Sarah Egan, clinical psychologist and senior research fellow at the school of psychology and speech pathology, Curtin University, Australia
"This superb, readable, and practical guide extends beyond the cutting edge and represents a much-needed translation of the transdiagnostic approach into the nuts and bolts of helping people. The Transdiagnostic Road Map to Case Formulation and Treatment Planning is a beautifully written and carefully crafted science-based book. I highly recommend this book as a precious resource for both students and experienced clinicians. A must-read."
--Allison G. Harvey, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley
"This book will raise your game. Frank and Davidson's The Transdiagnostic Road Map to Case Formulation and Treatment Planning is extraordinarily practical. Their research summaries on transdiagnostic mechanisms and easy-to-use formulation and treatment planning worksheets will make your work smarter and more efficient. A fantastic book for students, yet sophisticated enough for the experienced practitioner who works with multi-problem clients."
--Kelly Koerner, PhD, author of Doing Dialectical Behavior Therapy
