    5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have For Clinicians and Therapists

    I wish I’d found this book in undergrad. The usefulness of its content is impossible to overstate. The sheer number of descriptors provided for writing progress notes and reports is worth the buy in my opinion. An absolute must have for your bookshelf if you’re in the mental health or social services field.
