An Interview with Arthur E. Jongsma Jr.
Question: How did the original Adult Psychotherapy Treatment Planner come about?
Arthur E. Jongsma Jr.: In 1993, I consulted for the Salvation Army Turning Point chemical dependence treatment program. JCAHO reviewers had been critical of the treatment plan documents being produced. They flagged lack of uniform quality, deficits in problem definitions, low measurability of objectives, and ambiguous interventions as issues.
I worked with the clinical director of the program, Mark Peterson, MSW, to develop a menu of treatment plan components for common presenting problems in that client population. The clinical and quality assurance staff eagerly embraced this lexicon and organization, finding that it dramatically cut the time they had to invest groping for words, yet enabled them to create high-quality, customized treatment plans. This guidebook was expanded to include general mental health issues and was published as The Complete Psychotherapy Treatment Planner. Little did I know then that this single guidebook to help mental health professionals would turn into a series of over 45 books as well as software!
Q.: What have you enjoyed most about working on the PracticePlanners® series?
AEJ: It is satisfying to hear both graduate students and seasoned therapists praise the contribution these books have made to their training and practice. Also, as the series has evolved, I've had the honor of collaborating with very knowledgeable experts in specialized fields such as addictions, couples and family therapy, group therapy, and gerontology. Working with these specialists has helped me broaden my own clinical skills.
Q: The bestselling status of the series certainly points to it being an unusually useful tool for therapists. Why do you think that is?
AEJ: The breadth and depth of the Treatment Planners content is unparalleled in the professional marketplace. We have tapped the resources of experts with many different treatment populations and treatment approaches. And when Treatment Planners are integrated with Progress Notes Planners, Homework Planners, and Documentation Sourcebooks, it gives mental health professionals a complete package of timesaving tools for comprehensive treatment planning and clinical record management.
Q: What is ahead for you and the series?
AEJ: We recently launched a new line of books, Progress Notes Planners, that are a natural extension of the Treatment Planners: helping mental health professionals continue to save time while not compromising patient or client care.
When I'm not collaborating on the books, I'm continuing in my private practice, and putting together a wish list of new projects for the series! Which reminds me, the chance to exchange ideas with colleagues is another thing I've greatly enjoyed about working on the series. I'd love to get more feedback and suggestions from mental health professionals.
Dr. Arthur E. Jongsma Jr. heads an independent group practice in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He serves as coauthor of most of the books in the PracticePlanners® series.
