“This very well-written book is full of gems, consistently clear, and profound in analysis and wisdom. The reader follows the author through the many intricacies of psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. Much more than an ordinary textbook or guideline, this workbook helps the reader build 'best thinking practices' in mental health, and demonstrates their excellent results.”

—Rodrigo A. Muñoz, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego; past president, American Psychiatric Association

“Morrison has the ability to talk to the reader in a personal yet instructive way that reflects his years of experience in diagnostics. This is a perfect text for any beginning psychopathology, abnormal psychology, or diagnostics course. The methodical and logical analysis of cases, including active tasks that hone the reader's skills for DSM-5 diagnosis, makes the book unique. It is an invaluable resource for new trainees in psychiatry, psychology, social work, and psychiatric nursing. Students who use this workbook are sure to gain a sense of efficacy in their ability to differentially diagnose complex and challenging cases.”

—Sheila Garos, PhD, Director, Counseling Psychology Program, Texas Tech University

“This workbook tutors the beginning clinician in the art of interviewing, triaging risk, and identifying the key issues to consider in making a preliminary diagnosis. Utilizing vignettes, Morrison skillfully leads the reader through the thinking process of a seasoned practitioner, providing interactive examples that build the student's capacity to critically think through the case. The text is excellent for use to hone skills in diagnosis, interviewing, and case formulation, and would form a good jumping-off point for treatment planning and intervention courses. Finally, a book that offers students practice opportunities that will greatly enhance what they learn in the classroom!”

—Brenda Frechette, PhD, Adjunct Professor, California Institute of Integral Studies and John F. Kennedy University

“Morrison has provided a unique and comprehensive guide to critical aspects of clinical rapport, diagnostic interviewing, and diagnostic formulation. This text serves as an important tool for the aspiring clinician enrolled in a master's or doctoral program, as well as the more experienced clinician engaged in a busy practice. The book is special in that it uses clinical case vignettes to help the reader through the process of differential diagnosis. Any clinician will feel engaged and challenged by Morrison's cases and questions.”

—Paul D. Nussbaum, PhD, ABPP, Adjunct Professor of Neurological Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; President, Brain Health Center, Wexford, Pennsylvania
