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!
