About the Author

Diane A. Suffridge, PhD, is Assistant Professor at Dominican University of California (tenure track) and has provided training and supervision to many students, post-graduates, and licensed clinicians for many years. She has served as Clinical Director at several behavioral health centers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has over 25 years of experience as a psychologist.


"Psychotherapists work with case management in a variety of settings and provide services that are invaluable. Dr. Suffridge has developed a model treatment plan for graduate students and their post-graduate training. Her experience as an expert clinical psychologist, educator, and supervisor uniquely positions her to present this material in an easily understood manner. This is a must read for both students and professionals."-Mark Kamena, PhD, ABPP, Co-author of Counseling Cops: What Clinicians Need to Know

"This wise, readable book is invaluable well beyond its intended audience of beginning therapists, for whom it covers everything of importance that their graduate training left out. For supervisors, it identifies areas of needed clinical focus; for educators, it organizes applied clinical knowledge into teachable units; for patients, it demystifies the psychotherapy process. No other hands-on guide that I know of addresses so well the realities of clinical practice in our current era."-Nancy McWilliams, PhD, ABPP, Visiting Full Professor, Rutgers Graduate School of Applied & Professional Psychology
