The only journal devoted entirely to case studies, Clinical Case Studies presents cases involving individual, couples, and family therapy. Whether you are a psychologist, counselor, psychiatrist, clinical social worker, family therapist, professor or student of psychotherapy, you’ll find Clinical Case Studies to be a necessary part of your library.
