Each section of the text begins with a commonly heard student question, enabling faculty to provide a useful and relevant resource that is clear, topical, and addresses students’ concerns as well as the practical aspects of interviewing. This insightful text is accompanied by an extensive interactive video resource, and includes model interviews in different settings and with different clients, practitioners sharing their experiences, the nuts and bolts of interviews, and much more.
