Editorial Reviews

"¿ up-to-date, evidence based, and client and family centred. It will help clinicians to work with clients to make their rehabilitation goals more meaningful and achievable, thereby leading to more effective treatment planning and outcomes."¿Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy "¿ a unique and important contribution to the literature. ¿ [covering] a wide variety of relevant topics. ¿ [The editors] have assembled a substantial group of authors, especially from the UK and New Zealand. A worthy endeavor." ¿ Jeffrey S. Kreutzer, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, USA "Goal setting is used in just about every service, but it is something that is done in many different ways. This book provides the theory as to why goal setting should be used, as well as discusses how to use it in a wide range of clinical services. Therefore, this is definitely a book that everybody who works in a rehabilitation service should read. In fact, all rehabilitation teams should probably take the opportunity to read this book and review their practices having done so!"¿Prof. Jonathan Evans, University of Glasgow, UK
