"A valuable resource for those providing psychotherapeutic treatment and case management services to patients grappling with MS. This volume is a quick read and provides important basic reference materials and foundational knowledge for busy clinicians [and] excellent psychotherapy coverage. It is informative about issues that patients with MS face as well as treatment approaches."
