In this new edition, completely updated for DSM-IV-TR, the authors transform their professional experience into clear, concise, practical, and learnable skills. They teach how to master each of the four basic interview components separately, and how to make them interact optimally during the five phases of the patient interview. Also included is an example of a write-up of a psychiatric evaluation that will satisfy most third-party payers, taking the reader through the write-up step by step and showing how it can be adapted to virtually any procedural or research need.
