Review:

"This second edition is a welcome resource for students and residents and their instructors, as well as for practicing clinicians. Written in an easy-to-read, eloquent style, the book guides the reader through decision trees that simplify the complex process of making a diagnosis. It is filled with interesting case examples and handy roadmaps, and is updated for DSM-5."--Richard Balon, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Wayne State University

"Morrison is an excellent writer, and Diagnosis Made Easier, Second Edition, is an easy read filled with useful clinical pearls. Numerous cases illustrate over 20 diagnostic principles. This book is an excellent choice for mental health trainees. The emphasis on syndrome identification can be quite helpful when undertaking a diagnostic evaluation."--David L. Dunner, MD, Director, Center for Anxiety and Depression, University of Washington

"Diagnosis Made Easier, Second Edition, retains what made the first edition so useful, while fully updating it for DSM-5. It is well written, engaging, and filled with practical tips and rich illustrative examples, both from clinical practice and popular culture. The emphasis is on core principles that are essential for sound diagnostic decision making. Although this book is particularly well suited for courses on psychodiagnostic assessment, experienced practitioners will find it useful, as well."--Martin M. Antony, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

"Too often, research and theory seem divorced from practice and experience. Morrison's book is a joyful reunion of these contrasting perspectives. In clear prose, he walks us through guiding principles and heuristics that focus our attention on key diagnostic issues while building a scaffolding that keeps the myriad details organized. He demystifies how to meet the client as a person, understand their needs, and meld that with evidence-based assessment and treatment. If you teach more structured approaches to diagnostic interviewing, Morrison provides the context to make the ideas engaging. If you teach more open-ended, unstructured formats, then the skills and concepts provide a crucial core for clinical practice. I wish I'd had this book when I was in graduate school!"--Eric A. Youngstrom, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, and Psychiatry; Acting Director, Center for Excellence in Research and Treatment of Bipolar Disorder, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
