In this extensively revised and expanded new edition of the classic, The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice, the authors continue to address the challenges inherent in clinical interviewing—the complexities of defense mechanisms, conflicts, wishes, and fantasies—as they did in their original 1971 edition while also acknowledging the task of adapting their interview strategies to a new era of psychiatry.
New perspectives on psychopathology often emphasize descriptive phenomenological approaches and encourage psychiatric interviewing that is overly focused on describing symptoms and establishing diagnoses. The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice stresses that the clinician needs to learn about patients, their problems, their illness, and their lives. From this readers will understand the universal presence of personality types and the importance of the personality as a determining factor in the unfolding of the psychiatric interview.
Students learning psychiatry often ask, "But what do I say to the patient?" In 20 new and updated chapters, The Psychiatric Interview answers that question by using clinical vignettes from the authors' everyday work, what they said in a wide variety of clinical situations and what they felt and thought that led them to say it.

In this meticulously revised and expanded edition of The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice, the authors continue to address the challenges inherent in clinical interviewing--the complexities of defense mechanisms, conflicts, wishes, and fantasies--as they did in their original 1971 edition, while also undertaking the daunting task of adapting their interviewing strategies to a new era of psychiatry, one that has witnessed revolutionary breakthroughs in neuroscience, genetics, psychopharmacology, and brain-imaging research.
In 20 new and updated chapters, the authors comprehensively examine the strategy and conduct of psychodynamically informed clinical interviewing, accommodating the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic nomenclature but also being forthright in critiquing its limitations. Included are new chapters on traumatic, narcissistic, masochistic, anxiety, and borderline conditions and a contemporary perspective on interviewing “the patient of different background” (i.e., the patient whose race, ethnicity, culture, age, or sexual orientation is different from that of the interviewer). Updated chapters discuss modern psychodynamic theories; interviewing in the context of psychosis, schizophrenia, and cognitive impairment; strategies with hospitalized, psychosomatic, and emergency patients; and approaches with depressed, obsessive-compulsive, and histrionic patients. Incorporated throughout are compelling vignettes of interviewer-patient interchanges garnered from the authors' extensive clinical experience.
The Psychiatric Interview in Clinical Practice offers a wealth of clinical wisdom useful for trainees in all of the mental health professions, from medical students and psychiatric residents to psychologists, social workers, and nurses.About the Author:
