How can psychotherapists, counselors and medical practitioners best determine the most appropriate treatment for individual patients in primary care? The growth of counseling and therapy in primary care has been accompanied by pressure for shorter-term, brief treatments and evidence based, managed care. Mary Burton examines these issues in detail and the main focus is on the practical assessment of patients and the selection of appropriate treatment within the real world of service provision. This book is aimed at psychotherapists, counselors, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists with a serious interest in delivering best practice for their patients.
