Overview

Crafted to meet the day-to-day needs of school psychologists and other practitioners working with children, this is the most concise, practical, and up-to-date book of its kind. The expert author offers guidelines for interviewing children of different ages--as well as their parents and teachers--and for weaving the resulting data into multimethod assessment and intervention planning. Coverage encompasses school issues, peer and family relations, problem behavior, and more, with special chapters on assessing suicidality and violence risks. The book includes many detailed case illustrations and reproducible interview tools, in a convenient large-size format with lay-flat binding.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Clinical interviewing is the most frequently used assessment technique by practitioners in the field, yet it is also one of the most under-researched areas of psychological assessment. In the current context of mandated evidence-based practices, this book fills a crucial need by offering empirically based approaches to clinical interviewing of children and adolescents. This comprehensive text offers practical techniques for interviewing students, parents, and teachers, while addressing such issues as school functioning, antisocial behavior, emotional problems, substance abuse, and suicidality. A 'must' for professionals interested in learning cutting-edge child and adolescent assessment techniques."--William R. Jenson, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Utah

"Those of us conducting interviews for the purpose of diagnosis and intervention planning will find this text an excellent resource. The complexities and dynamics common to conducting interviews with children, parents, and teachers are discussed in a clear and comprehensive manner. Dr. McConaughy has provided a concise, user-friendly, research-based text that will prove an invaluable guide for school-based and clinical practitioners. The reproducible worksheets, interview outlines, illustrative case examples, and chapters on assessing risks for suicide and violence are wonderful additions."--Michael J. Breen, PhD, Director of Special Education/Pupil Services, Winneconne Community School District, Wisconsin

"A noteworthy contribution and resource that will help practitioners address the social and emotional barriers to learning in the children they serve. McConaughy provides an evidence-based approach to the process of clinical interviewing and takes that important next step of showing how to use assessment data in planning early interventions. This indispensable manual responds to the call for increased reliance on evidence-based approaches for improving results in school-based interventions."--Lee Huff, MS, President (2004-2005), National Association of School Psychologists

"This text offers an excellent review for mental health service providers and a solid introduction for beginning graduate students. Most useful is the inclusion of recently available data and specific appendices that present structured and informal tools for use with children and adolescents, parents, and teachers. The author’s commonsense approach reflects her sensitivity to interviewing as an art as well as a science."--Elliot J. Davis, EdD, School Psychologist, Brandywine School District, Claymont, Delaware

NASP Communiqu�
"This book packs in a large amount of useful and user-friendly information that is particularly relevant for the psychologist in a school or clinic setting....The most valuable features of this book for school psychologists and other practitioners are the reproducible forms for semi-structured parent and teacher interviews and the reproducible forms for structured diagnostic parent interviews based on DSM-IV criteria....Provides invaluable, research based clinical interview strategies, techniques, and theories for busy school psychologists and other practitioners in a format that is well-organized and easy to use."--NASP Communiqué
PsycCRITIQUES

"Presentations and case examples are wonderfully clear and practical. They are also realistically complex and detailed....Provides the reader with an excellent model for effective, real-life clinical problem solving with difficult child clinical cases. McConaughy has generously shared much of her clinical wisdom, which comes only from a rich and extensive clinical experience, in her presentation; this material is not available elsewhere. Graduate students in a variety of mental health disciplines...as well as seasoned clinicians...will very likely find much that is novel, innovative, and insightful in this presentation. This volume and the clinical methods that it presents serve as an excellent model for optimization of integrative psychological assessment with children and adolescents. Its widespread use as an academic text and as a manual for clinical practice is strongly encouraged."--PsycCRITIQUES
