Psychiatric Interviewing and Assessment Reviews


'This book contains an abundance of practical advice and clinical practice wisdom ... it sends a clear message that relating to patients in a warm, genuine, accepting, and inquisitive fashion provides the setting in which patients are encouraged to collaborate with the psychiatrist, become more self-reliant and autonomous, and progress along the path to recovery from mental illness.' Psychiatric Services
'It is written with a great sense of humour, lucidity, and without the unnecessary quest for a political correctness. The authors clinical acumen and experience are obvious. The chapters are straight to the point, well written, with good clinical illustrations, and with another good feature - the main points of each chapter are at the end of it.' Annals of Clinical Psychiatry
'This book needs to be considered as recommended reading for all doctors in training in psychiatry. ... It provides illuminating and thought-provoking insights into self-awareness and the issues we as practitioners bring into the therapeutic relationship. These issues are captured succinctly by well-chosen clinical scenarios. The text is easily digested and readable, with summary points at the end of each chapter which help to make what can be enormous issues distilled and clear. ... This book is disarmingly applicable and approachable. ... it is an unsurpassed and important work.' British Journal Of Psychiatry
'This book contains an abundance of practical advice and clinical practice wisdom ... I would wholeheartedly recommend the book to any student or clinician of any experience level in a mental health setting.' Justin J. Trevino, M. D. American Psychiatric Association
'Should be read by every psychiatrist.' David Enoch, BJPsych Bulletin (www.pb.rcpsych.org)
