Office Practice

  • Edward Dengrove

Abstract

This chapter is written from the point of view of a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice for some 40 years. Long experience has made it possible to hone and chisel the initial hour interview to a point where sufficient material is elicited to begin treatment before the patient leaves the office. This is a decided advantage. The patient leaves with feelings of hope and some idea of the goals of therapy. Shortcuts in therapy derive from years of trial and have had time to prove their worth, strengthen the patient—therapist relationship, and result in a more comfortable practice.
