""I strongly recommend this book to mental health administrators, supervising clinicians, and others who are concerned with continually improving the quality of their treatment planning process. It would be an outstanding resource for training candidates who are pursuing professional degrees in mental health and addiction treatment.""
""Treatment Planning for Person-Centered Care puts the entire concept of individualized service planning into understandable language for all readers, whether they are students, clinicians or the persons receiving services. The authors have captured the essence of active involvement of the persons served in the identification of needs (as well as strengths) and the development of a plan that will address those needs. This book is definitely in concert with and supports the CARF Behavioral Health standards, and would be an excellent resource for organizations wanting to better understand how to move towards a person-centered assessment and planning process.""

""Treatment Planning for Person-Centered Care by Neal Adams and Diane Grieder is a one-of-a-kind book. The authors take what for many clinicians is irritating paperwork requirement, treatment planning, that is a diversion from their ""real"" work of therapy and turn it into a valuable tool. More importantly, clinicians and students in clinical training who read this book will think differently when they are done. By placing the person, the client at the center of planning, Adams and Grieder take the reader step by step through a transforming process. They lead us to re-think whose goals are we trying to achieve in treatment. This book could precipitate many fruitful seminar discussions during clinical training, an antidote to the therapist as authority fig
