From the Publisher:

One of the best books on clinical interviewing just got better. The increased emphasis on multicultural issues and new sections on the science of interviewing and intake report writing are particularly welcome additions.
This is easily one of the best books on clinical interviewing available and makes an outstanding text for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the helping professions. In successfully blending theory, scholarly research, and richly illustrated clinical examples, the authors bring the material to life.
The book stands out in the competitive field of clinical interviewing texts. In addition to providing invaluable information on basic interviewing skills, it addresses advanced topics such as assessment, treatment planning, and important multicultural issues.
Exceptionally clear and well-written, this book provides beginning graduate students in the helping professions with invaluable information on learning how to conduct effective clinical interviews. Highly recommended.
A worthwhile addition to the library of any helping professional, this book offers much more than most beginning-level texts on helping skills. Chapters on suicide assessment, conducting effective mental status examinations, diagnosis and treatment planning, interviewing children and families, and multicultural issues set it apart from similar texts. --Eric R. Dahlen, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, University of Southern Mississippi

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Clinical Interviewing, Fourth Edition

"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, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology, Director of Clinical Training, Case Western Reserve University Editor in Chief, Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy

"It is a delight to see the Fourth Edition of the Sommers-Flanagans'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, EdD, ABPP Professor Emeritus, University of Massachusetts Amherst President, Microtraining Associates, Inc.

"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, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology, Co-Director of Clinical Training, Catholic University of America
