Description

Designed for interviewers at all levels of experience, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5(R) Diagnostic Exam is the clinician's companion for using DSM-5(R) in diagnostic interviews. Both experienced clinicians and those still in training will benefit from the thoughtful, yet practical, fashion in which DSM-5(R) 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(R) 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 appendixes with resources to enhance understanding. These include a brief, easy-to-use summary of DSM-5(R) disorders; a stepwise approach to differential diagnosis; the Mental Status Examination and a psychiatric glossary; the ABPN Clinical Skills Evaluation; DSM-5(R)-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 take into account the many and interrelated causes of mental disorders.

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