Review:

"The fourth edition of this classic by John and Rita Sommers–Flanagan is simply a triumph! This book has both extraordinary depth and breadth. The authors do an exceptional job of describing mundane––but critical––details of learning to interview while still capturing and articulating the essential "big picture" aspects of contemporary clinical interviewing. The book has it all: theory, research, case material, and the essential "how to′s", all presented in an accessible and lively format. It is hard to imagine a better book for beginning clinicians."
David A. Jobes, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor of Psychology, Co–Director of Clinical Training, Catholic University of America, Washington, DC

"Thorough, thoughtful, and well–written, John and Rita Sommers–Flanagan do an outstanding job demonstrating the scientist–practitioner model in action. The text provides excellent coverage of the basic skills involved in clinical interviewing, and the material is brought to life through an engaging literary style, numerous case examples, and informative and amusing anecdotes. The authors also confront important ethical issues pertaining to clinical interviewing, such as informed consent, confidentiality and its limits, and documentation according to HIPAA standards. The review of the literature is current, summarizing many contemporary issues and controversies, such as revisions to be included in DSM–V."
James C. Overholser, Ph.D., ABPP; Professor of Psychology, Director of Clinical Training, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH; Editor–in–Chief, Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy

"It is a delight to see the 4th Edition of the Sommers–Flanagan′s excellent work. They understand counseling and therapy, their writing is clear, and this book will be enjoyed by students and faculty alike."
Allen E. Ivey, Ed.D., ABPP; Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst; President, Microtraining Associates, Inc.
