Three Spheres: A Psychiatric Interviewing Primer
"Clinicians continue to develop their interviewing skills over their entire careers. To start this process, Dr. David Robinson primes the beginning clinician's pump with examples, vignettes, graphs, and grids. His humorous illustrations secure the reader's emotional response and his mnemonics the cognitive response - so that what is taught is easily remembered.
His primer primes more than the novice. It re-invigorates the seasoned clinician. This book surpasses its GOAL -
" Masterfully done!"
