"This much-needed volume brings to the clinician or student some of the best critical-minded analysis by some of the most insightful thinkers about psychiatric diagnosis today. The thought-provoking questions these essays raise, and the multifaceted and provocative answers they provide, cultivate sensitivity to the nuances of diagnostic assessment that often makes the difference between clinical success and failure." - Jerome C. Wakefield, PhD, DSW, New York University Silver School of Social Work, New York
This transformative resource challenges social workers and mental health professionals to rethink their approaches to assessment and diagnosis from the ground up. Among the book's unique features are its use of diverse lenses to examine a common case and its illustration of how multiple perspectives can be integrated for a richly textured portrait of the individual in context. Equally crucial is the book's commitment to professional development, from exercises to improve case conceptualization to -strategies for teaching and learning.
Topics include:
The DSM-5 definition of mental disorder: critique and alternatives.
Making assessment decisions: macro, mezzo, and micro perspectives.
Neuroscience, resilience, and the embodiment of "mental" disorder.
Narrative, psychodynamic, and cultural conceptualizations of disorder.
Person-centered and contextualized diagnosis in mental health.
Meeting the challenge of teaching integrated assessment.
Critical Thinking in Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis has much to offer professionals, researchers, and educators in the fields of social work and mental health.
