From the Back Cover

PRAISE FOR Clinical Interviewing, Fifth Edition

"For students wanting to learn about the assessment and interviewing process, this book offers a comprehensive approach to putting skills and knowledge into action."
–Marianne Schneider Corey, MA, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Consultant Gerald Corey, EdD, ABPP, Diplomate in Counseling Psychology; Professor Emeritus of Human Services and Counseling, California State University, Fullerton; coauthors of I Never Knew I Had a Choice

"Clinical Interviewing, Fifth Edition is a 'must-read' for all beginning therapists and supervisors and, I would add, even seasoned psychotherapists will find important new ideas for improving their work!"
–Pamela A. Hays, PhD, author, Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice: Assessment, Diagnosis, and Therapy and Connecting Across Cultures: The Helper's Toolkit

"Replete with relevant clinical examples, helpful how-to hints, as well as pearls of clinical wisdom, this comprehensive yet accessible text is highly recommended."
–Victor Yalom, PhD, founder and CEO, Psychotherapy.net

The classic guide to proven, practical strategies for conducting effective interviews

Now in its Fifth Edition, Clinical Interviewing guides clinicians through the entire interviewing process, beginning with elementary listening and counseling skills and on to more advanced clinical assessment processes, such as intake interviewing, mental status examination, and suicide assessment.

This update to the classic text features access to the Video Resource Center (VRC), which includes real-life scenarios of actual counselors and clients demonstrating techniques for effective interviews. Additionally, this Fifth Edition presents:

  • DSM-5 content emphasizing case formulation and treatment planning
  • A greater emphasis on collaborative goal setting and the client as expert
  • New discussion on multicultural counseling, orientation, and competency
  • Research supporting evidence-based relationships
  • Coverage of assessment and interviewing via e-mail, telephone, texting, instant messaging, and online chatting
  • Structured protocol for conducting a face-to-face, telephone, or video conferencing/Skype mental status examination interview

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I am a faculty member in Counselor Education at the University of Montana, a clinical psychologist, and mental health consultant for Trapper Creek Job Corps. I love working with tough kids and young adults, offering professional workshops and keynotes, and teaching at the University of Montana.

After many years of playing sports I have developed a friendly but competitive streak that involves me engaging in particularly annoying victory dances when I win at family games. Unfortunately, my game-playing skills never match my trash talking and so now my friends and family (especially my wife and daughters) are usually the ones who get to do the victory dances. Sometimes I channel my competitiveness into fantasizing a peculiar form of March Madness where user-friendly counseling and psychotherapy approaches compete head-to-head with "empirically supported" manualized techniques. Of course, in the end, the user-friendly approaches easily win the tournament, thus proving forever that developing and maintaining a positive relationship with clients is much more effective over the long haul than applying educational techniques described in a treatment manual or attempting to medicate away undesirable behaviors and moods. This, of course, accurately implies that I almost always root for the underdog and wish deeply for social justice.
