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.

New chapters have been added on interviewing youth; interviewing couples and families; multicultural interviewing; and diagnosis and treatment planning. Acclaim for Clinical Interviewing . . .

Meier, PhD, Associate Professor and Codirector of Training, Program in Counseling and School Psychology, SUNY Buffalo "This is an exquisitely crafted book.

The Handbook of Clinical Interviewing with Children is one of three interrelated handbooks on the topic of interviewing for specific populations. It presents a combination of theory and practice plus concern with diagnostic entities for readers who work, or one day will work, with children (and their parents and teachers) in clinical settings. The volume begins with general issues (structured versus unstructured interview strategies, developmental issues when working with children, writing up the intake interview, etc.), moves to a section on major disorders with special relevance for child populations (conduct disorders, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, etc.), and concludes with a section addressing special populations.
“Clinical interviewing with adults is both an art and a science. This handbook will appeal to a wide range of clinical researchers, therapists, interns, and graduate students new to the complexities of the clinical interview and diagnostic process. The comprehensive range of topics and coverage that includes case illustrations with dialogue and differential diagnosis and co morbidity will be highly attractive features to researchers, professional therapists, and graduate students. The Hersen and Thomas team is highly qualified to succeed in this ambitious set of three projects.” —Carolyn Brodbeck, Chapman University The Handbook of Clinical Interviewing with Adults is one of three interrelated handbooks on the topic of interviewing for specific populations.
