Designed for interviewers at all levels of experience, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5-TR Diagnostic Exam is the clinician's companion for using DSM-5-TR in diagnostic interviews. Both experienced clinicians and those still in training will benefit from the thoughtful, yet practical, fashion in which DSM-5 revisions are reviewed and incorporated into the 30-minute diagnostic interview.

This guide is written for all levels of experience, since every clinician needs to master both DSM-5-TR criteria and how to conduct a fruitful diagnostic interview. The book:

• Provides insight into the process of establishing a therapeutic alliance, which remains the goal of any psychiatric encounter, even one as brief as the diagnostic interview.• Offers an extensive set of resources to enhance understanding. These include a brief, easy-to-use summary of DSM-5-TR disorders; the Mental Status Examination and a psychiatric glossary; suggestions for mental health treatment planning; guidance for the ABPN Clinical Skills Evaluation; DSM-5-TR-related diagnostic tools and scales; and coverage of alternative diagnostic systems and rating scales.• Provides a sequential framework for generating a differential diagnosis, using a six-step approach, that will help clinicians develop their clinical decision-making skills and ensure that they consider the many and interrelated causes of mental disorders.

Direct, practical, and informative, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5-TR Diagnostic Exam will enable readers to efficiently and effectively employ DSM-5 as part of a comprehensive diagnostic interview.
