Interviewing Skills and Diagnostic Procedures

INTRODUCTION

Assessment and screening are necessary components to the treatment process of substance-related disorders. Sprong and Davis (2018) purport “An assessment provides the clinician with an overall understanding of the client’s symptoms, strengths, needs, and supports.” A clinician needs to use effective counseling skills to elicit the most comprehensive information from a client in order to produce a holistic view of their life.

  • The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) is used to diagnose substance-related disorders. Analyzing the assessment data to develop a diagnosis is an important step in the treatment process.

In this unit, you will have the opportunity to review the diagnostic criteria for substance-related disorders and practice developing substance-related diagnoses. In addition, this unit will provide a review of basic foundational counseling skills and the importance of utilizing them in the assessment of substance-related disorders.
