“Fundamental Skills for Mental Health Professionals” by Linda Seligman.

It’s a basic coverage of techniques and how to integrate the assessment process into therapeutic sessions.  Broken into 6 main sections, Seligman discusses (1) establishing foundational skills, (2) using these foundational skills to assess and incorporate client background, (3) skills involving emotional experience, (4) assessing thought processes, (5) changing behaviors, (6) solidifying skills over time and with experience.  An excellent companion book to graduate studies or a compact refresher of theory.
