This book collects the 'best of the best' of leading therapists, who offer highlights from their years of practice as 'clinical pearls,' or nuggets of information for other therapists to use in clinical practice. Topics covered include all those that are most common to therapeutic settings: depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and treatments for children, adolescents, and couples. Contributors offer case studies that best exemplify the 'pearls,' and how they were used in the course of treatment, with tools for assessment (often a key issue for therapists in determining their course of action) and descriptions of the treatment approaches used. The final section of the book, 'Concluding Remarks,' includes the contributors' thoughts on how they came to use the skills/pearls, how long it took them to develop, and what their key assumptions were.
