This service begins with a medical interview which involves the history of the presenting illness, past history, social history, and family history. The problem is assessed and diagnosed, the client-physician relationship is developed and maintained, information is communicated and treatment is planned. The course of the symptoms is understood, their relation to each other, and the meaning. The next step is the Psychiatric Interview which addresses the client’s psychological make-up, motivation (conscious and unconscious), ego strengths and weaknesses, coping strategies, defense mechanisms, vulnerabilities, areas of aptitude and achievement. The environmental context is reviewed including the client’s relationship to his/her environment, significant religious and sociocultural influences, support system/network, and environmental stressors.
