Assessing Psychosis: A Clinician’s Guide offers both a practical guide and rich clinical resource for a broad audience of mental health practitioners seeking to sharpen their understanding of diagnostic issues, clinical concepts, and assessment methods that aid in detecting the presence of psychotic phenomena.Practicing psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses will find this a valuable resource for clinical practice, training, and teaching purposes.

Reviews:

"Written by clinicians for clinicians, this title addresses the psychopathology of psychoses. It illuminates the human dimension in the context of clinical application. The authors provide wisdom and methods to enhance the assessment of domains of pathology that will enrich the application of the DSM-5. Discussion of suicide, violence and psychosis proneness bring a clinical and scientific understanding to widely discussed public issues." --William T. Carpenter Jr., MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center

"The authors provide comprehensive in-depth coverage of conceptual formulations, research findings, diagnostic considerations, and clinical assessment procedures concerning psychotic disturbance. This valuable contribution will be appreciated by mental health professionals at all levels of experience." --Irving B. Weiner, PhD, ABPP, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Neurosciences, University of South Florida

"Clinical social workers will treasure this "must have" guide to assessing psychosis. It contains pragmatic, immediately applicable ideas for the busy clinician. Providing unusual clarity and nuance to the complex world of psychosis Dr. Kleiger and Dr. Khadivi hit all the salient points covering clinical formulation, diagnostic concepts, and special populations including chapters on culture, violence, suicide, and children and adolescents. Case vignettes deepen clinical understanding and bring to life the humanity of the patient. As a clinician, supervisor, and faculty member, I cannot think of a more useful guide for the practicing clinician who struggles with the challenges of psychosis." --Gavin W. Behrens, MSW, LCSW-C, Faculty, Washington School of Psychiatry
