Overview

The Clinical Interview Using DSM-IV-TR, Volume 2: The Difficult Patien t applies the four-dimensional interviewing approach outlined it its c ompanion volume (The Clinical Interview Using DSM-IV-TR, Volume 1: Fun damentals) to the difficult patient. It also enhances the interviewing process by employing specialized techniques that correspond with diff iculties often encountered by clinicians. Through numerous case exampl es, this book shows how integrating psychodynamic, cognitive, and neur opsychiatric approaches-as well as the legal system's methods of cross -examination and voices stress analysis-can help elicit reliable infor mation from tough patients and aid in solving their diagnostic puzzles . Completely updated for DSM-IV-TR, this book strives to overcome gen eralization in interviewing by promoting a differential approach that individualizes and explores each disorder and all its contributing fac tors in depth, thus preparing the patient for optimal therapeutic inte rvention.
