PsycEssentials is a comprehensive pocket resource for busy psychotherapists. It provides quick and easy access to the key information you need when working with a client. If you are looking for an appropriate assessment tool, state-by-state referral resources, or information on a psychotropic drug, you will find it here. Beyond checklists and links, the app provides a wealth of guidance on working with clients.
What's New in Version 1.1
New splash screen orientation.
Overpriced & not very good @ that!
This was by far the biggest waste of $! It doesn't have all the data necessary-it just outlines it-don't do it!
Save $15 and get the Kindle book version
This has less utility in "on the fly" diagnostic and treatment reference and more about setting up a practice. There seems to be little advantage to having a dedicated app over a Kindle book, certainly not $15 bucks worth. The only exception would be if there were free and routine upgrades as info changes or sections get expanded. Disappointingly many of the sections are simply lists of hyperlinks (who knows how long those web sites will be available) and other sections are so simplistic that anyone who has made it through their provisional license should feel like saying "well duh."
Don't think however that this is an entirely unfavorable review. It is nice to have this information in a concise and accessible format. I just feel it is quite a bit over priced even as a Kindle book at $25.00 (it should be more like the typical sub-$10 range) but ridiculously over priced as an app at $35.00 (again, should be sub-$10).
