“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. It presents a combination of theory and practice plus concern with diagnostic entities for readers who work, or one day will work, with adults in clinical settings.The volume begins with general issues (structured versus unstructured interview strategies, mental status examinations, selection of treatment targets and referrals, writing up the intake interview, etc.), moves to a section on major disorders most relevant to adult clients (depression, bipolar disorder, agoraphobia, posttraumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, alcohol and drug abuse, sexual dysfunction, etc.), and concludes with a chapter on special populations and issues (neurologically impaired patients, older adults, behavioral health consultation, etc.).
