Reviews

As a resident psychiatrist, I found this book extremely enlightening. In addition to providing a framework for approaching various types of patients, it elucidated many missteps from notably poor patient encounters from my training. The clinical vignettes in each chapter serve to further develop this education. They are especially helpful in transforming concepts of the psychiatric interview into tangible applications that can be more easily incorporated into clinical practice. Throughout the book, the authors address potential transference, countertransference, motivations for patients' behavior, and nuances of the psychiatric interview. This helps stem the clinicians' frustrations during the interview, improve empathy, and thereby achieve the authors' goal. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to colleagues, but a more thorough discussion of the manic patient would be helpful, especially for residents learning to manage this particularly difficult interview. -- Cameron J. Risma, M.D, * Doody's Book Review *
