This text provides a thorough, accessible, and authoritative introduction and reference for both beginning mental health clinicians and practicing therapists. The first part describes basic clinical skills used in the evaluation and treatment of mental disorders with chapters on intake and interviewing, crisis issues, diagnosis, and treatment planning. Guidance is given on communicating well with clients from other cultures. The remaining nine chapters are organized by clinical disorder, with chapters on cognitive, mood, personality, anxiety, and substance-related disorders. Two chapters address disorders of childhood, with discussion of developmental disorders, ADHD, and other behavior disorders. Each chapter is thoughtfully organized, providing discussion of the many disorders that fall under each category and including helpful tables and frequent reference to additional literature. A psychopharmacology, list of references, and author and subject indexes conclude this excellent resource. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
