In Individualized Case Formulation and Treatment Planning, Drs. Jacqueline B. Persons, Michael A.

Case formulation and treatment planning are important steps in the therapy process that will affect work with the client throughout the course of therapy. The video provides guidelines for case formulation and treatment planning, a demonstration with a client who is depressed, and detailed discussion of these steps.

This video features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of actual case material.
