Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312130872, Paperback)

An essential book for all who are considering or are in some form of psychotherapy.

Take control of the therapeutic process. Get the high-quality treatment you and your loved ones deserve!

Dr. Bruce Hamstra cuts through the jargon and the smoke-and-mirrors routines used by mental health professionals. He explains how to spot the symptoms of psychological disorders. He tells you what a therapist does-and how to make any therapist respond to your needs.

In How Therapists Diagnose, Dr. Hamstra:

-Reveals the new diagnostic guidelines used by professionals and uses clear-cut, easy-to-understand examples and case illustrations to explain what the diagnoses really mean
-Includes confidential diagnostic code numbers used by insurance companies
-Demystifies the actual diagnostic process and divulges the techniques and clues used by therapists
-Explores misconceptions and myths surrounding diagnosis, and explains why some self-interested professional groups twist the truth
-Discloses, for the first time in any book, how therapists are routinely forced to alter and abuse the diagnosis for insurance purposes-often without the patient's knowledge
-Provides you with important tools to avoid misdiagnosis and hold professionals accountable
