    I am currently a first year MS student in mental health counseling. Next semester I will be doing my practicum at a university clinic with mostly clinical psychologists. They have a pretty detailed computerized charting system which will require that I have decent knowledge of interviewing and DSM-IV categorizations. I was curious what book someone can recommend that would be focused on practical application of the DSM-IV like this for someone without a whole lot of DSM-IV experience.

    Thanks!

    For initial reading, try Morrison and Anders - they have a separate book for children and adults.

    I was only able to find: "Interviewing Children and Adolescents: Skills and Strategies for Effective DSM-IV Diagnosis"

    Can you give me the title of the book dealing with adults? Or suggest another that deals with this topic?

    Thanks!
