What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

“The authors of this Fifth Edition of Clinical Interviewing have enhanced their already fine work with the addition of a few timely topics, including: increased focus on multicultural competency; emphasis on collaborative goal setting; increased attention to evidence-based relationships; and a new chapter on online interviewing formats. For students wanting to learn about the assessment and interviewing process, this book offers a comprehensive approach to putting skills and knowledge into action.”—Marianne Schneider Corey, M. A., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Consultant & Gerald Corey, Ed.D., ABPP, Diplomate in Counseling Psychology, Professor Emeritus of Human Services and Counseling, California State University, Fullerton, co-authors of I Never Knew I Had a Choice

Clinical Interviewing, Fifth Edition is well organized, written in a nonjudgmental, easily accessible style, and contains excellent case examples representing real-world dilemmas. Of particular value are the clearly stated objectives at the beginning of every chapter and practical up-to-date information on topics that are often not discussed or included in training programs. Clinical Interviewing is a "must-read" for all beginning therapists and supervisors and, I would add, even seasoned psychotherapists will find important new ideas for improving their work!”—Pamela A. Hays, Ph.D. Author or Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice: Assessment, Diagnosis, & Therapy; and Connecting across Cultures: The Helper’s Toolkit

“A superb synthesis and presentation of the key concepts any beginning student absolutely needs to know about clinical interviewing. John and Rita Sommers-Flanagan make an eloquent case that connecting with the client on a human level is the superordinate task, without which little else of value can be achieved. Replete with relevant clinical examples, helpful how-to hints, as well as pearls of clinical wisdom, this comprehensive yet accessible text is highly recommended."—Victor Yalom, Ph.D., Founder and CEO, Psychotherapy.net
