Clinical Documentation for Children and Adolescents Release Day!

I know what you are thinking. What do you mean it’s release day again? Didn’t you just release a book a few months ago? You would be correct! Hyperfocus is my superpower.

Clinical Documentation with Children and Adolescents is LIVE as of today. Thank you everyone who pre-ordered – we didn’t quite make it to the #1 new releases list on Amazon this time, but that is okay. I am just glad that lots of people are going to learn more about documentation considerations when working with minors. It is an important part of the ethics in our work and one that is often overlooked.

If you didn’t pre-order, that’s okay! You can get your hardcover, paperback, or ebook copy through Routledge (my publisher) or on Amazon.

In case you forgot, here is what this book is about:

This book addresses the unique challenges therapists face when documenting their clinical work with children, providing insight into what ethical, appropriate, and culturally competent practice looks like.

Clinical documentation is vital for ethical and legal practice, and good documentation helps clinicians leave room for client-centered and age-appropriate interventions, such as play therapy. Beginning with an overview of the important considerations unique to providers working with children, Amy Marschall offers guidance on all aspects of clinical documentation, such as intakes, treatment plans, mental status examinations, progress notes, safety plans, and more.

Each chapter includes specific examples of clinical situations with guidance on how to document these situations effectively. With chapters on client confidentiality and telehealth, as well as special attention being paid to cultural awareness, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status, this book includes blank templates of treatment plans, progress notes, and risk assessments for therapists to use in their practice.

This book is essential for any mental health professional who works with children in both individual and family work, including psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, play therapists, school counselors, and therapist interns.
