Description - The Clinical Interview Using DSM-IV-TR by Ekkehard Othmer
This text applies the four-dimensional interviewing approach outlined in its companion volume "The Clinical Interview Using DSM-IV-TR, Volume One: Fundamentals" to the difficult patient. It also enhances the interview process by employing specialized techniques that correspond with difficulties often encountered by clinicians. Through numerous case examples it shows how integrating psychodynamic, cognitive and neuropsychiatric approaches - as well the legal system's methods of cross-examination and voices stress analysis - can help elicit reliable information from tough patients and aid in solving their diagnostic puzzles. Updated for DSM-IV-TR, it strives to overcome generalization in interviewing by promoting a differential approach that individualizes and explores each disorder and all its contributing factors in depth, thus preparing the patient for optimal therapeutic intervention.
