Concise Guide to the Psychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents

Due to an increasing recognition that childhood psychiatric syndromes often continue into adulthood, direct and systematic interviewing of pre-adolescents has become more prevalent.

Overview

Not long ago, child psychiatrists rarely conducted Mental Status Examinations on their patients for fear of nosological labeling. Due to an increasing recognition that childhood psychiatric syndromes often continue into adulthood, direct and systematic interviewing of pre-adolescents has become more prevalent. Cost-effective pressures have made it imperative that sound diagnostic processes are performed and relevant treatment plans are implemented.

The Concise Guide to the Psychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents provides residents and veteran practitioners with the skills to conduct effective interviews for the Mental Status Examination of children and adolescents. It discusses general aspects of interviewing, phases of the diagnostic interview, and strategies and considerations regarding different situations in the interviewing process.

This book looks at how to use non-verbal techniques during the interview process and discusses how to evaluate internal, external, and other symptoms. It also deals with the documentation required for the Mental Status Examination and introduces the reader to the neuropsychiatric examination.

Diagnostic obstacles and resistances incurred during the interview process are addressed. This text describes the theory and pragmatics of the formulation process and presents a model for a comprehensive psychiatric diagnostic formulation. The issues related to symptom formation and symptom maintenance are discussed as well as issues related to countertransference responses that surface during the diagnostic interview.

With a wealth of tables, case examples, glossary, and bibliography, this concise guide quickly demonstrates the techniques described in this book. It’s the perfect clinical reference for residents and practitioners working with children and adolescents.

"...covers the general principles of interviewing, nonverbal techniques, evaluation of internalizing and externalizing symptoms, neuropsychiatric examination, comprehensive psychiatric formulation, special situations, and more."
