Summary: This book provides a complete guide to conducting an age-appropriate child or adolescent interview and formulating a clinically useful DSM-IV diagnosis. Part I takes readers step-by-step through the interview process, describing the steps needed to establish rapport, what kind of information should be sought, and how it can be obtained. Excerpts from six actual interviews, including an infant interview with a mother and child, are used to demonstrate techniques and s
trategies for interviewing preschoolers, school-aged children, and teens. The components of an effective written report are also reviewed. Part II provides detailed diagnostic information about 28 mental and behavioral disorders that are usually first diagnosed in childhood, as well as 32 "adult" disorders as they may be encountered in children. The authors translate complicated DSM-IV criteria into clear and readable prose, highlighting differences in presentation that can be expected at different developmental stages. Special features include detailed case vignettes, pointers for interviewing for specific disorders, and quick-reference tables and charts to facilitate rapid
differential diagnosis.

Clinicians who work with children; graduate level students of psychiatry, psychology, social work, and school psychology.

Will serve as a primary text in courses on child assessment and diagnosis.
