Review

Praise for 2E: "This book...represents a thorough and well-written presentation of the strategies, processes, and interactions necessary for the effective clinical interview...highly recommended..." (Albert B. Hood, University of Iowa for APA Review of Books)

Review

One of the best books on clinical interviewing just got better. The increased emphasis on multicultural issues and new sections on the science of interviewing and intake report writing are particularly welcome additions.
This is easily one of the best books on clinical interviewing available and makes an outstanding text for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the helping professions. In successfully blending theory, scholarly research, and richly illustrated clinical examples, the authors bring the material to life.
The book stands out in the competitive field of clinical interviewing texts. In addition to providing invaluable information on basic interviewing skills, it addresses advanced topics such as assessment, treatment planning, and important multicultural issues.
Exceptionally clear and well-written, this book provides beginning graduate students in the helping professions with invaluable information on learning how to conduct effective clinical interviews. Highly recommended.
A worthwhile addition to the library of any helping professional, this book offers mu ch more than most beginning-level texts on helping skills. Chapters on suicide assessment, conducting effective mental status examinations, diagnosis and treatment planning, interviewing children and families, and multicultural issues set it apart from similar texts.
—Eric R. Dahlen, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, University of Southern Mississippi

Clinical Interviewing is at the heart of psychotherapy. It is THE most important tool in the clinician's tool bag. The process involves the paradoxical components of creating a relationship of safety and trust while gathering important information in order to make an intervention or change in the client's life. This exceptional book provides the basic understandings and skills needed to become an effective interviewer.
—Jon Carlson, Psy.D., Ed.D., ABPP, Distinguished Professor, Governors State University

Format: Hardcover
Interviewing textbooks are notoriously dry and mechanical. I can count using the fingers of one hand the number of books I have read on the subject that are worth their weight in cotton candy.
This work by the Sommers-Flanagan duo represents an excellent addition to the instructional literature on the fine art of interviewing. They use an wonderful blend of humor, humanity, sound advice and counsel, and theory.
Highly recommended.

Invaluable text book for counseling students March 18 2010
By M. Baxani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is rare to find a text book that is not a chore to read, but this is one of them! The authors write in a very engaging manner, and the frequent bursts of humor make reading it a real pleasure. It takes readers through all the steps of interviewing, at a perfect pace, so that readers are not overwhelmed with information, but are able to absorb it, and develop their skills gradually. It also discusses in depth how to work with particular populations, including young clients, culturally diverse clients, and couples. The skills and techniques are discussed in a way that is is easy for readers to grasp and apply to their work. I would highly recommend this book for all students in the helping professions field. It is the most useful book I read during graduate school and I will always refer back to it throughout my career.

Amazing book on Clinical Interviewing! Jan. 24 2010
By M. Baldridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is one of the best I have read during graduate school. It has been deeply relevant to my experiences as a counselor so far, and having a copy on my bookshelf gives me a sense of security surrounding the difficult situations I have yet to face in my career. It is also engaging to read, thoughtfully written, and artfully organized. John and Rita Sommers-Flanagan are skilled writers and have a unique ability to deliver complex content in a way that is easy for readers to absorb and apply to practice. Reading this book has been an essential component of my education as a counselor,as well as an enjoyable experience, and I will continue to refer back to it throughout my career.

Great Reference Book March 29 2012
By norman floyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is another book in which I used for my Master's; it is very detailed and must have if you are considering entering the "helping profession." It goes into valuable skills for interviewing. My path did not lead to becoming a clinical psychologist, but the material in which I was required to read trained me from that prospective, as the interview, if done properly will be most helpful in establishing rapport. The book discusses items, such as Theoritical Orientations, as this becomes most important as different schools of thought will approach the same issue but only from their prospective,i.e, Cognitive Behavior Therapy vs. Transactional Psychology. Consequently, if say for instance, you the intervier were called before a panel and explained why you approached an issue a certain way. It would be related to your school of training. I hope this makes sense. It will be a valuable reference in the field of Sociology and /or Psychology for sure!!!
