Summary

This clinical interviewing primer blends a personal and easy-to-read style with a unique emphasis on both the scientific foundations and interpersonal aspects of mental health interviewing. Written from an integrative/eclectic perspective, this edition also incorporates modifications made necessary by the rise of managed care and by revised thinking in the interviewing field related to DSM-IV. New chapters have been added on suicide assessment interviewing; interviewing teens, couples, and families; multicultural interviewing; and stress management techniques for the interviewer.
