Description

This book is a comprehensive reference on both the structure and content of the clinical interview and its authors present the strategies and fundamental knowledge required to conduct the clinical interview with different kinds of patients and for specific psychopathologies. It provides a thorough overview on clinical and diagnostic interviewing with state-of-the-art presentations of significant theoretical orientations (psychoanalytic, behavioral, humanistic/existential, and family systems) as well as information on frequently encountered psychopathologies. The book stresses the idea that the clinical interview is controlled by the therapist and develops in a phase-sequenced progression along predictable lines. Clinical interviews flow from a theoretical stance on the part of the clinician, are usually semi-structured to the extent that areas are probed consistent with official diagnostic criteria and with know aspects of suspected psychopathologies, including co-morbidities, and include an understanding of the patient's personality and possible personality disorders that may complicate treatment of Axis I disorders or which may be the focus of treatment itself.
This book elucidates this process and may serves as a primary source for practitioners who want to know more about the process of clinical interviewing as well as a useful text for those students who are in the process of learning clinical interviewing.

Review quote

This is definitely a textbook that can be used to advantage by clinical educators in graduate programs in nursing, social work, psychology, and other helping professions...Clinical and Diagnostic Interviewing makes a good addition to the library of anyone who engages in clinical supervision and training in a variety of practive settings. Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic: A Journal for the Mental Health Professions, Spring 2008 Psychotherapy is both an art and a science and if, in practice, therapists incline to one or the other, students need to learn both. The second edition of Clinical and Diagnostic Interviewing is an attempt to ensure that they do. Part textbook, andpart reference, it provides both a general introduction to the clinical interview and an account of how different theoretical traditions approach it. Broad in scope and comprehensive in its review of the literature, it accommodates the taxonomy of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, is inclusive of structured and more phenomenological approaches to the interview and is sensitive to how the interview must be adapted to specific populations, diagnoses, and settings. As such, itbalances the soulful with the practical and serves the reader well. Students will be forced to consider the multiple factors affecting a clinical interview and the complex balance that a therapist must achieve among theory, skill, diagnosis, patient need, and setting. Graduate students should therefore find it a helpful introduction to the process of clinical interviewing and the multiple ways in which it can be undertaken, and in some instances they will benefit from its review of the literature and d PsycCRITIQUES Psychotherapy is both an art and a science and if, in practice, therapists incline to one or the other, students need to learn both.
