Book Description :

Mental Status Examination for Personality Disorders is for clinical students, interns, residents, and practicing professionals who want to painlessly perfect their evaluation skills. It explains how to perform and interpret a validated DSM-5 and ICD-10 mental status examination specifically designed for patients with personality disorders and demonstrated in the American Journal of Psychiatry, Psychiatry Research, Biological Psychiatry, Psychiatric Services, and Psychological Reports. Mental Status Examination for Personality Disorders then introduces you to 32 challenging, real-life patients who were given the same mental status examination. They tell you their stories as if you were their personal clinician and you diagnose their problems. You will learn from patients with Borderline, Narcissistic, Histrionic, Avoidant, Dependent, Obsessive-Compulsive, Schizoid, Schizotypal, Paranoid, Passive-Aggressive, Antisocial, and Psychopathic Personalities plus Conduct Disorder and Bipolar Disorder, Major Depression, Substance Use Disorders, and other conditions that masquerade as personality disorders. American Psychiatric Association (DSM-5) and World Health Organization (ICD-10) codes are explained in detail. Every step of the diagnostic thinking process is explained, so that when you see a difficult personality disordered patient in the emergency room, hospital, clinic, private office, or forensic setting, you will know just what to do. Mental Status Examination for Personality Disorders explains the nature of each personality disorder and how to interview and treat patients with personality disorders in clinical settings. The text explains the Personality Inventory Scales, an evaluation tool for personality disorders, and The Card Test Cognitive Examination that measures attention, language, memory, abstract thinking, and sequential thinking (executive function). You receive model interview scripts and questionnaires for your patients to fill out in advance. Specialized information on defenses, coping strategies, cognitive deficits, and the best therapeutic techniques for patients with each personality disorder are provided in each case. A large section on Resources completes the volume. Time is precious for clinicians—we care for our patients, meet with their families, attack mountains of paperwork, and complete the requirements of our ongoing education. Diagnostic skill is essential for our success. Let's get started now!

This book prepares the mental health professional to use scientific skills when working within a legal framework. Written by a seasoned forensic psychiatrist with decades of experience and professional honors, this text answers some of the most challenging questions psychiatrists face when mental health intersects with the courtroom. The text is supported with 34 case vignettes that demonstrate ways in which seemingly simple diagnoses have unique layers of complexities that are vital within the legal system. The resource covers topics that may not be elucidated in medical schools, including what to expect from an expert witness, how to communicate with attorneys who lack a medical background, managing opposing viewpoints, psychiatric and medical malpractice, harassment, employment status, and other difficult topics as it pertains to the law. The text also knits this understanding of forensic psychiatry with clinical knowledge, addressing violence and risk assessment, discrimination, disability evaluation, psychiatric disorders, criminal and civil competence, end-of-life care and decisions, and a wide array of medical topics that have unique concerns when placed in the context of the legal system. The Forensic Examination is a vital resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, criminal and civil defenders, and all professionals working with persons in the medicolegal system.

The Handbook also includes ready-to-photocopy versions of the most popular, valid, and reliable scales and checklists, along with scoring keys and links to websites containing on-line versions. Moreover, the Handbook describes well known, structured, diagnostic interviews and the specialized training requirements for each. It also includes details of popular psychological tests (such as neuropsychological, personality, and projective tests), along with practical guidelines on when to request psychological testing, how to discuss the case with the assessment consultant and how to integrate information from the final testing report into treatment. Focused and immensely useful, the Handbook of Clinical Rating Scales and Assessment in Psychiatry and Mental Health is an invaluable resource for all clinicians who care for patients with psychiatric disorders.
