Narratives in Psychiatry


In this comprehensive book, the authors discuss the general principles behind psychiatric interviewing and assessment. They then, though the use of in-depth case histories combined with analysis, demonstrate how those principles apply in a wide variety of contexts. They show how information is elicited from clients and used in forming assessments; how courses of action are decided upon; and how clients are reassessed as cases change and develop over time.
