Description:

It has been nearly a half-century since the inaugural edition of The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice, and the book’s status as a classic was again validated with the second edition a decade ago. This new, third edition maintains the book’s reputation with thoroughly updated content that reflects changes brought about by the publication of DSM-5. The book presents the psychiatric interview in the context of the enormous and ongoing progress that has been made in biological and descriptive psychiatry. In addition, the book emphasizes the shift in the social relationship between patient and clinician, recognizing that the therapeutic alliance has become the foundation of all medical treatment efforts and that patients are now better informed and seek active involvement in treatment decisions. The text reflects this growing equality and supports the clinician’s efforts to nurture the relationship for optimum therapeutic outcomes. The chapter on the traumatized patient has been completely updated for this edition, and a chapter on the patient with dissociative identity disorder has been added. Clinicians familiar with the previous edition will be pleased that its commonsense, easy to-use structure has been retained even as its content has been thoroughly revised. The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice will benefit mental health clinicians, both seasoned and in training, ensuring that their skills are current and their knowledge cutting-edge.

User’s Review:

In this extraordinary book, the authors do several things that pertain to psychiatric interviewing, including: outlining the principles of interviewing, outlining the principles of psychodynamics, providing wonderful examples of each type of patient, and reviewing special circumstances. The authors also give a picture of how differential diagnosis can be used in the understanding of different kinds of patients. This book offers one of the best guides for doing good clinical work in the world of mental health. It should be required reading for all students in our field. –Elizabeth L. Auchincloss, M.D., Vice-chair, Education, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

This is an outstanding resource for psychiatric education in general. Going beyond while covering DSM-5, it shows how to find out about and understand a patient’s complex personality syndrome by evaluating the interactions of symptoms, problems of identity and interpersonal relationships, past history, current defenses and coping strategies, as well as conscious and unconscious mental processes underlying thought and emotion. I recommend it highly for a wide range of readers from beginners to continuing evolution of seasoned clinicians. –Mardi Horowitz, M.D., Author of, Adult Personality Growth in Psychotherapy, Distinguished Professor Psychiatry
