Description - Standardized Evaluation in Clinical Practice by Michael B. First

Augmenting the broad information contained in the "Handbook of Psychiatric Measures", this guide examines the real-world issues involved in implementing measures in actual clinical settings. Eleven contributors focus on both the uses and limitations of structured diagnostic interviews in clinical practice and on specific measures for assessing two crucially important factors in clinical practice: suicide risk and global functioning. This guide details the pros and cons of using structured interviews and rating scales in clinical settings to ensure reliable and valid assessments of diagnosis, symptoms and outcomes.
