With fully integrated DSM-5 criteria and current CACREP standards, this text examines case conceptualization and effective treatments across the most common disorders encountered in counseling. The comprehensive approach helps readers develop their professional identities as well as their case conceptualization and intervention skills. Each chapter blends current theory and research with case illustrations and guided practice exercises to anchor the material in real-world application. Using an innovative new Temporal/Contextual (T/C) Model, the book provides an easy-to-apply and practical framework for developing accurate and effective case conceptualizations and treatment plans.

Case Conceptualization and Effective Interventions is part of the SAGE Counseling and Professional Identity Series, which targets specific competencies identified by CACREP (Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs).

"In [this book], Zubernis and Snyder provide counselors-in-training and beginning counselors alike with an excellent resource to assist them in accurately diagnosing and treating clients using current approaches proven to be effective at bringing about change. Through their guided presentation of mental disorders most often encountered by professional counselors, Zubernis and Snyder bridge the gap between theory and practice and prepare counselors to effectively work with diverse client populations."

Joshua C. Watson, Mississippi State University-Meridian

“This text will help transform how we teach and provide skill development [and] professional identity for our students in the 21st century.”

Anthony T. Strange, Winthrop University

Zubernis and Snyder give good descriptions of the diagnoses in the DSM categories (though I wish all DSM diagnosis categories will be covered in the next edition). The treatment considerations in the chapters are also helpful for students to start to learn about treatment planning for clients with specific presenting concerns and symptoms.
