Overview

Ideal for both novices and advanced practitioners, the new edition of Stanley Greenspan's classic guide outlines a practical process for observing and interviewing children -- and organizing and interpreting their unfolding communications.

Highly acclaimed, The Clinical Interview of the Child uses actual interviews with children to show readers how to • Apply a developmental, biopsychosocial framework for understanding the inner lives of children at different ages and stages• Observe and assess human development, including emotional and cognitive patterns and perceptual capacities• Help infants and children to reveal their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors during the clinical interview• Organize and interpret the interview data by constructing a developmental profile and translating it into DSM-IV-TR diagnostic categories

The third edition has been expanded and revised extensively, with updated theoretical and conceptual foundations; information on higher levels of ego development and reflective and thinking capacities of older children; and a new section on a developmental biopsychosocial model -- the developmental, individual-difference, relationship-based (DIR) approach.

An invaluable educational and practical resource, The Clinical Interview of the Child, Third Edition, is an ideal tool for psychiatrists and psychologists, pediatricians, educators, social workers, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, and judges and attorneys dealing with children and families.
