This book, specifically designed to meet the needs of those teaching and learning interviewing and diagnostic skills in clinical, counseling and school psychology, counselor education, and other programs preparing mental health professionals, offers a rich array of practical, hands-on, class- and workshop-tested role-playing and didactic exercises. The authors, who bring to their task a combined 31 years of practice and 24 years of teaching these skills, present 20 complex profiles of a broad range of clients--adults, teens, and children; differing in ethnicity, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, presenting problems, and problem severity. The profiles provide students/trainees with a wealth of information about each client's feelings, thoughts, actions, and relationship patterns on which to draw as they proceed through the different phases of the intake/initial interview, one playing the client and one the interviewer. Each client profile is followed by exercises, which can also be assigned to students not participating in role-playing who have simply read the profile. The profiles are detailed enough to support a focus on whatever interviewing skills an instructor particularly values. However, the exercises highlight attending, asking open and closed questions, engaging in reflective listening, responding to nonverbal behavior, making empathetic comments, summarizing, redirecting, supportively confronting, and commenting on process. The authors' approach to DSM-IV diagnoses encourages students to develop their diagnostic choices from Axis I to Axis V and then thoughtfully review them in reverse order from Axis V to Axis I to ensure that the impacts of individual, situational, and biological factors are all accurately reflected in the final diagnoses. Throughout, the authors emphasize the importance of understanding diversity and respecting the client's perceptions--and of reflecting on the ways in which the interviewer's own identity influences both the process of interviewing and that of diagnosis. Interviewing and Diagnostic Exercises for Clinical and Counseling Skills Building will be welcomed as a invaluable new resource by instructors, students, and trainees alike.

Case Conceptualization and Treatment Planning, Second Edition is a core textbook that teaches students in counseling, psychotherapy, and clinical psychology how to formulate a treatment plan that is integrated with theory and personalized to each client. Case conceptualization is the process of providing a theoretical explanation for what the client is like/experiencing and why they are like this. In order to do this, a student must draw from a variety of theoretical approaches. The treatment plan is the method/plan a therapist formulates in order to help the client achieve change. This book provides a detailed step-by-step guide for students to practice formulating case conceptualizations and treatment plans using a variety of popular theoretical models. Each chapter focuses on a specific theoretical approach. Within each chapter, the author provides client interviews and a sample case conceptualization followed by a treatment plan. Then the book presents another client interview and guides the student through the process of constructing a case formulation and treatment plan. This helps the student develop their plan in a guided, step-by-step process. Upon completion, the chapter contains questions to stimulate further critical thinking.
