The Clinical Assessment Workbook: Balancing Strengths and Differential Diagnosis


The Clinical Assessment Workbook: Balancing Strengths and Differential Diagnosis Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The purpose of this workbook is to facilitate student's understanding of the DSM IV and other texts related to the diagnoses of mental disorders. It is designed to enhance the student's ability to assess clients' strengths and to diagnose any emotional difficulties the client may be experiencing. It will provide students with the opportunity to practice their assessment skills in a classroom environment prior to entering the field as a mental health professional. Students will not only learn the various diagnostic categories of the DSM IV but also how to apply these categories to clients they will be seeing in practice. It will aid students in understanding dual diagnoses, symptom formulation, and the overlap between diagnostic categories.

Book News Annotation:

Case examples of many psychiatric disorders are presented for students taking courses in abnormal psychology, clinical assessment, psychopathology, and the DSM-IV-TR. Each section on a specific category of disorders describes symptom patterns and discusses the potential impact of behaviors consistent with the diagnosis on an individual's support system. Diversity issues are considered, and suggestions are given for handling emergency situations. The authors are affiliated with the University of Texas-Austin.
