"Denise Davis is right on point in her book Terminating Therapy: A Professional Guide for Ending on a Positive Note. In this book she addresses the confusion that exists in this area of professional practice in a very productive way, clarifying it in fashion that offers guidance that is ethical, legal and in the best interests of both the patient and the therapist. Her common sense approach to termination issues is refreshing and makes this book a must read for all mental health professionals regardless of their specialty." ?Jeffrey N. Younggren, Ph.D., Risk Management Consultant, American Psychological Association Insurance Trust Denise Davis' review of the process of termination grounds the reader in practical fundamentals of initiating, framing and maintaining treatment as she consistently focuses on the needs, goals and progress of clients, yet never overlooks the at times knotty concerns of clinicians striving to deliver safe and ethical service that reflects best practices and evidence-based accountability. With sensitivity, Denise Davis provides a helpful compilation of practical pitfalls that might befall any therapeutic alliance. This work is a "must-read" clinical treasure? Davis? work clearly fills a gap in the literature to enrich client and clinician alike. ?James L. Rebeta, Ph.D., President, Manhattan Psychological Association, Assistant Professor of Psychology in Clinical Psychiatry, Weill Medical College of Cornell University "Terminating Therapy provides a thoughtful and comprehensive discussion of the many issues involved in termination. It addresses underlying principles and concrete actions in a way that will be consistently helpful to practicing clinicians. This is the single best source I have seen on the subject of termination." ?Steven D. Hollon, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Vanderbilt University
