Treatment Planning 101 will give counselors and coaches a foundation in how to develop goals and action plans for any client. Counselors, including social workers, mental health workers, substance abuse providers and psychotherapists will learn new ways to help a client navigate into the unknown.

The text also includes a link to a video where the author demonstrates one of the tools, Forcefield Analysis, using an unrehearsed, unscripted role play.

Graham provides an overview of the four directions treatment plans can take clients then outlines a revised framework for SMART, the criteria often applied in treatment plan development and often applied when assessing the efficacy of treatment plans.
