This new edition of the formerly titled Foundations of Therapeutic Interviewing 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 interviewing youth; interviewing couples and families; multicultural interviewing; and diagnosis and treatment planning.
Acclaim for Clinical Interviewing . . .
Everything the beginning therapist needs to know about interviewing . . . . is in this book.
The writing style is effective and will appeal to both upper division undergraduates and graduate students. Tulio M. Otero-Zeno, PhD, Columbia College at ECC
The authors should be commended. This is a well-written book that would have a great deal of utility in a beginning-level graduate interviewing class in a counseling or social work program. Steven G. Little, PhD, Program Chair, School Psychology Program, University of Alabama
I was most impressed by the different ways in which the book is balanced. The authors blend philosophical foundations with practical skills; nondirective approaches to listening . . . with more directive stances . . . scholarly citations . . . with clinical wisdom. Scott T. Meier, PhD, Associate Professor and Codirector of Training, Program in Counseling and School Psychology, SUNY Buffalo
This is an exquisitely crafted book. The attention to detail is remarkable . . . the authors cite the most recent clinical and research literature. Each chapter is chock-full of information that novice therapists need to know and experienced therapists could benefit from remembering. David Scherer, PhD, Clinical Psychologist and Associate Professor of Counseling, College of Education, University of New Mexico
