Much has changed in the critical interval since the last edition of The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice was published. This new, third edition provides an up-to-date examination of the psychiatric interview that reflects changes introduced in DSM-5, while continuing to recognize that describing symptoms and establishing a diagnosis should command only a portion of the clinician's attention, and that a patient's personal history must be elicited and character structure addressed in the clinical engagement. Significant advances have been made in biological psychiatry, and research in genetics, cognitive neuroscience, psychopharmacology, brain imaging, and the neurosciences in general continues apace, informing the culture of psychiatry and providing growing insight into the etiology of mental illnesses. However, the book reflects the authors' belief that virtually all major psychiatric disorders are complex amalgams of genetic disposition and environmental influences. In this context, the psychiatric interview is a vitally important dialogue, and effective strategies are modeled through the use of clinical vignettes taken from the authors' experience. Topics and features of this new edition include: An updating of diagnostic considerations to reflect the publication of DSM-5. A chapter on interviewing the patient with dissociative identity disorder (DID), which is now recognized as an entity distinct from other psychopathological conditions and rooted in childhood trauma. The frequency of DID in the ambulatory setting has been repeatedly demonstrated and speaks to the need to accurately diagnose and treat this often-debilitating disorder. An entirely updated chapter on interviewing the traumatized patient. A section on interviewing the patient of different background. The book emphasizes that the subjective experience of being "different" is universal and that psychiatry is enriched by recognizing and exploring that experience, validating its existence, and attempting to understand how it influences the patient's life. Continued emphasis on and inclusion of relevant case vignettes drawn from the authors' clinical experiences. Structural consistency across chapters, with sections on psychopathology and psychodynamics, differential diagnosis, management of the interview, transference and countertransference, and so forth, which reinforces skills acquisition and makes the text easy to use. By creating a text that is aligned with DSM-5 while continuing to stress the importance of eliciting the patient's subjective experience and achieving a therapeutic dialogue, the authors of The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice have done a great service to the profession and provided much-needed guidance to mental health clinicians and trainees.

While the ABPN has now supplied such standards for psychiatry,psychiatric interviewing instruction has not been standardized inthe US or in other countries. Similarly, the few psychiatricinterviewing books available are written in textbook form, oftenlong and often from the subpecialty perspective (e.g. psychodynamicinterviewing). Critically, no interviewing guides to datetake a true biopsychosocial perspective. That is, they limitthemselves to “interviewing” as an isolated techniquedivorced from full patient assessment, which for quality patientcare must include the interface of psychological and socialcomponents with biological components. Similarly, fewinterviewing texts are fully integrated with DSM/ICD categoricaldiagnostic schemata, even though these descriptive diagnosticsystems represent the very core of our clinical language—thelingua franca of the mental health professions. Without good descriptive diagnoses there cannot be adequatecommunication of clinical data among providers. The proposed book will meet this need for training inbiopsychosocial assessment and diagnosis. The patient interview is at the heart of psychiatricpractice. Listening and interviewing skills are the primarytools the psychiatrist uses to obtain the information needed tomake an accurate diagnosis and then to plan appropriatetreatment. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology andthe Accrediting Council on Graduate Medical Educationidentify interviewing skills as a core competency forpsychiatric residents. The Psychiatric Interview: evaluation and diagnosis is anew and modern approach to this topic that fulfills the need fortraining in biopsychosocial assessment and diagnosis. Itmakes use of both classical and new knowledge of psychiatricdiagnosis, assessment, treatment planning and doctor-patientcollaboration. Written by world leaders in education, the book isbased on the acclaimed Psychiatry Third Edition byTasman, Kay et al, with new chapters to address assessment inspecial populations and formulation. The psychiatricinterview is conceptualized as integrating the patient's experiencewith psychological, biological, and environmental components of theillness. This is an excellent new text for psychiatry residents at allstages of their training. It is also useful for medicalstudents interested in psychiatry and for practicingpsychiatrists who may wish to refresh their interviewingskills.

The psychiatric interview is the foundation of the psychotherapeutic process and is critically important to establish trust, elicit useful responses, assess patient behavior and psychopathology, and establish treatment goals and plans. Building on the success of its predecessor, a highly regarded guide to interviewing young patients and their families, Psychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents, has been thoroughly updated and painstakingly revised to address emerging issues and evolving treatment strategies in an accessible, down-to-earth, and comprehensive style and structure. The book retains its comprehensive coverage of the principles of interviewing, use of the AMSIT model for mental status examinations, and evaluation of both internalizing and externalizing symptoms, as well as its coverage of neuropsychiatric assessment, psychiatric formulation, comorbidities, resistances, and countertransference. Additional features, either notable or new to this book, include: The importance of diagnostic and therapeutic engagement in establishing trust with the patient and family, and techniques for forging a positive emotional connection, which the authors view as an essential responsibility for the clinician and a linchpin of successful practice. A new chapter on the psychiatric evaluation of preschoolers and very young children, which recognizes that assessment cannot be conducted based solely on adult report, and which presents the "multiples" model: multiple sessions, multiple informants, multiple experts, multiple modes of assessment, multicultural approach, and multiaxial emphasis. Expanded coverage of bullying, including cyber bullying, which has a pervasive and potentially pernicious effect on young people steeped in social media. Recognition, both throughout the book and in a separate chapter on family assessment, that behavior problems in a child or young adult cannot be understood without the relational context of the family, and that any family member's problems are best understood as manifestations of dysfunctions within the broader family unit. Expanded coverage of the factors and issues involved in evaluating children and adolescents from special populations, including those with neurodevelopmental disorders or intellectual disabilities; those who are disadvantaged, displaced, or victims of discrimination; and those with posttraumatic stress disorder related to terrorism or burn trauma. The book's instructional aims are enhanced by the use of carefully chosen and compellingly crafted clinical vignettes that illustrate vital concepts and techniques, and key points at the end of each chapter help the reader identify and remember the most important material. Psychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents will help clinicians master the skills and attain the insight they require to accurately assess and effectively treat this most vulnerable of patient populations.
