Revising Clinical Interviewing — Who Wants to Help?


It’s time to put our Clinical Interviewing text into its 5th edition and so I’m just starting on my main and very exciting summer project (there’s some, but not complete sarcasm here). In the next four weeks I’ll be editing, updating, and transforming the 15 chapters with the latest thinking and research in the Clinical Interviewing domain.

That brings me to the purpose of today’s blog.

If any of you are familiar with this text and have thoughts about what needs to change and what needs to stay the same, I’d love to hear from you.

If any of you are aware of cutting edge research on clinical interviewing, I’d love it if you’d pass the information on to me.

And if any of you have special qualifications and might want to write a 1,000-1,500 word professional essay on a specific topic in one of the chapters . . . let me know and I’m open to hearing your ideas.

In the meantime, I’m hunkered down in a small cabin on the Stillwater River just West of Absarokee and will be diving into this project (and not the river) as I fend off the staggering winds (wishing for a wind turbine . . . darn it) and take breaks to weed the garden and catch skunks. I’ll try not to have too much fun and will be blogging more than usual in an effort to avoid real work:).

  1. Sounds like a long over due project for a lot of use. I just went to a training by Berry Duncan from the heart and soul of change and he has some fabulous research about effective approaches evidenced base research to psyco-therapy. And he has come up with a feed back system for the clinical and an easy way to track out come measures. More information checkout hear andsoul ofchange.com It is god stuff

    1. Thanks Stephen. The Barry Duncan stuff is great. I’ve got a doc student at the U of MT who is very much into that approach and so we’re using the feedback system here. Have an excellent day.
