Since the publication of the first edition of this book, two significant developments have occurred in the field of clinical and diagnostic interviewing. First, the DSM was revised - now DSM-IV- and second, researchers have developed a plethora of structured clinical interviews for consideration in the diagnostic process. While most of these have their main applicability for psychopathological research, their publication has forced clinicians to be more conscientious in formulating diagnoses and in assessing an array of signs and symptoms for a given disorder.
These two trends meant that the material in the first edition had become outdated. Hence the chapters have been revised to make them consonant with DSM criteria, with advances in thinking within the various theoretical orientations, with the inclusion of areas in mental health that did not appear in the first edition (i.e., severe psychiatric disorders, anxiety disorders, assessment of adolescents) and the chapters themselves have been supplanted with newer material (i.e., illustrative cases) that serve as prototypes for the material discussed within the chapter.About the Author:
