Psychiatric Clinical Skills: Preface

“For students of various mental health professions, this book will serve as a thorough introduction to the range of clinical skills needed in mental health practice. For practising clinicians, it will be a helpful source of ideas as to how to make one’s clinical skills and assessment comprehensive and knowledgeable as well as compassionately and meeting patients’ needs… I believe that this most useful and timely book will become a classic text that no department of psychiatry should be without.” —Paul Grof, MD, FRCPC, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry
