Interviewing in Action: Relationship, Process, and Change / Edition 2

Praised nationwide by instructors throughout the helping professions, INTERVIEWING IN ACTION gives students the clinical wisdom and hands-on practice to fully develop their clinical interviewing skills. In this Second Edition, Bianca Cody Murphy and Carolyn Dillon reinforce their superb RE-VIEW Practice Method of skills development with even greater emphasis on the importance of relationship building as a key to successful clinical process. As suggested by the book's new subtitle—RELATIONSHIP, PROCESS, AND CHANGE—the authors show students how they can promote change over time using the client-clinician relationship as an impetus for growth. A book and video package option offers many teaching and learning solutions. With this option, students purchase the package—the book and the full video at a greatly reduced price. The video includes short, specific clips that illustrate the chapter's discussion in action—in real client/clinician settings. The 120-minute video features six client/clinician pairs, including one completely new to this edition.
