Description:

Almost two decades have passed since the publication of the first edition of this acclaimed text. The new third edition carries on the tradition of the previous two in offering a practical, state of the art presentation of the interview process. The critical first step to diagnosis and treatment, the interview is as much art as science, and this text provides a wealth of material to enhance clinical skill as well as empirically-derived foundations. The structure of the text has been retained, with chapters by noted experts detailing current innovations in theory and practice, including recent changes to the DSM-IV. Completely revised and updated, accessible, and illustrated with relevant case material, the third edition of Diagnostic Interviewing will be a welcome text for instructors and students, as well as a valuable resource for clinicians.
