Adult Psychopathology Case Studies Excerpt :

A unique case study book, Adult Psychopathology Case Studies presents adult client case studies that describe the ways in which people with psychological disorders are likely to think, feel, and act. Written by experienced clinicians and well-known authorities in their respective specialties, it brings together the work of an international group of contributors who address the nature, origin, development, manifestations, course, and prognosis of a diverse range of adult psychopathological conditions. Close examination is given to the clinical, personal, contextual, theoretical, ethical, and legal dimensions of case studies, along with insightful, real-world focus on overlapping themes, such as culture, substance abuse, domestic violence, and sexual abuse. Authors illustrate rational case formulation, but stop short of exhaustive or doctrinaire analyses that would discourage alternative opinions on how and why a disturbance occurred or its likely outcome–giving students an opportunity to apply their own knowledge to each case and providing instructors with material that will spark lively classroom discussion and debate. The contributors also bring a broad range of theoretical perspectives to the diverse array of case studies, including psychoanalytic, psychodynamic-interpersonal, cognitive, and cognitive-behavioral conceptualizations of psychopathology and psychotherapeutic methods. Adult Psychopathology Case Studies includes thirteen full-length case studies in the following categories: Personality disorders Anxiety and somatoform disorders Identity disorders Habit disorders Serious or psychotic disorders Also included are six brief case studies covering: Adjustment disorder Dependent personality disorder Schizotypal personality disorder Generalized anxiety disorder Polysubstance dependence Depressive disorder Adult Psychopathology Case Studies offers an engaging and perceptive look into the real world of adult psychopathology and provides students with an enrichi

Diagnostic Interviewing Excerpt :

Perhaps the most difficult milestone in a young clinician's career is the completion of the first interview. For the typical trainee, the endeavor is fraught with apprehen sion and with some degree of dread. If the interview goes weIl, there is consider able rejoicing; if it goes badly, much consternation results. Irrespective of the amount of preparation that has taken place before the interview, the neophyte will justifiably remain nervous about this endeavor. Thus, the first edition of Diagnostic Interviewing was devoted to providing a clear outline for the student in tackling a large variety of patients in the interview setting. In consideration of the positive response to the first edition of Diagnostic Interviewing, published in 1985, we and our editor at Plenum Press, Eliot Werner, decided that it was time to update the material. However, the basic premise that a book of this nature needs to encompass theoretical rationale, clinical description, and the pragmatics of "how to" once again has been followed. And, as in the case of the first edition, this second edition does not represent the cat's being skinned in yet another way. Quite to the contrary, we still believe that our students truly need to read the material covered herein with considerable care, and once again the book is dedicated to them. We are particularly concerned that in the clinieal education of our graduate students, interviewing has been given short shrift.
