The Adult Psychotherapy Progress Notes Planner

Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, PsyD (Cermak Health Services)Description: This book provides language for clinicians to create mental health progress notes that correspond to treatment plans. It presents different DSM-5 diagnostic categories, along with other problem areas. It is part of the Wiley "Practice Planners" series. This is the sixth edition, last published in 2014.Purpose: According to the book's introduction, "This Progress Notes Planner provides a menu of sentences that can be selective for constructing progress notes based on the behavioral definition (or client's symptom presentation) and therapeutic interventions from its companion Treatment Planner. All progress notes must be tied to the patient's treatment plan — session notes should elaborate on the problems, symptoms, and interventions contained in the plan" (p. 1). Those are worthy objectives, which the book meets.Audience: According to the book, this is "an essential resource for psychologists, therapists, counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals working with adult clients." The book meets the needs of its intended audience. The authors are credible authorities in the subject matter of the book. Arthur E. Jongsma, Jr. is series editor for these volumes. He has practiced for approximately 50 years in outpatient and inpatient mental health settings. David J. Berghuis is president of Berghuis Psychological Services in Michigan as well as president of the Michigan chapter of the Association for Treatment of Sexual Abusers. Katy Pastoor is employed by Berghuis Psychological Services and works with individuals who have sexual behavior problems. She conducts risk assessments, along with individual and group therapy.Features: This easy-to-read book is full of useful information over 564 pages. Each diagnosis/problem area (45 in total) contains sections on client presentation and interventions implemented. Within these two main sections, there are a number of subsections that provide statements that could apply. For example, under Anger Control Problems and Client Presentation, there are sections including Episodic Excessive Anger, General Excessive Anger, Cognitive Biases Toward Anger, etc., each containing possible narratives a clinician could use. Under Interventions Implemented, there are sections such as Establish Rapport, Focus on Strengthening Therapeutic Relationship, Gather Sexual History, Assess Attitudes and Knowledge, etc., also containing several narratives. The book presents over 8,000 concise progress notes available for use.Assessment: This planner will be of great help to clinicians who can use (or modify) these brief statements to provide more clarity to their progress notes. This will save time and assist in linking progress notes with treatment plans. The sixth edition is more consistent with evidence-based treatment, justifying replacing the fifth edition.
