Revised and upgraded, this practical handbook is a succinct how-to guide to the psychiatric interview. In a conversational design with numerous medical vignettes, Dr. Carlat outlines reliable methods for approaching threatening subjects, improving patient recall, dealing with tough patients, getting the psychiatric history, and interviewing for diagnosis and treatment. This edition features upgraded chapters on the significant psychiatric disorders, new chapters on the malingering client and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and new scientific vignettes. Easy-to-photocopy appendices consist of data kinds, client education handouts, and other regularly referenced information. Pocket cards that accompany the book offer a portable quick-reference to often necessary truths.
