Abstract: Designed for interviewers at all levels of experience, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5[trademark] Diagnostic Exam is the clinician's companion for using DSM-5[trademark] in diagnostic interviews. Beginning with an introduction to the diagnostic interview, the Pocket Guide addresses the goals of the interview, provides an efficient structure for learning how to conduct one, reviews the screening questions, and then tackles the ways in which DSM-5[trademark], with its updated approaches to diagnosis and classification, impacts the interview going forward. Significant revisions from DSM-IV-TR[registered] to DSM-5[trademark] are reviewed. The final chapter, the core of the guide, walks the reader through a complete diagnostic exam that includes the follow-up questions for each of the DSM-5[trademark] disorder classes. The book is useful for beginners learning the format and flow of the diagnostic interview and for seasoned clinicians conducting an interview consistent with the significant revisions reflected in DSM-5[trademark]. Not intended to replace DSM-5[trademark] itself or psychiatric interviews texts, The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5[trademark] Diagnostic Exam is a pragmatic and concise resource for diagnosing a person in mental distress while establishing a therapeutic relationship.
