Organized around the classification system in the DSM-IV-TR, this book provides opportunities for professionals to practice making diagnostic assessments using case examples. Author Susan Gray begins with an overview of the competency-based assessment model and the multiaxial diagnostic framework, followed by guidance for interpreting the case studies. The remainder of the book is organized around selected diagnostic categories from the DSM-IV-TR. Mental health professionals will learn to use the DSM's multiaxial diagnostic framework, as well as a competency-based assessment model factoring in a client's unique biological, social, and cultural influences.
