Entering the Child's Mind: The Clinical Interview In Psychological Research and Practiceby Herbert P. Ginsburg
Pub. Date: 04/28/2010
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The first comprehensive treatment of the theory and practice of the clinical interview method, a flexible, deliberately non-standardized technique for investigating children's thinking. The book aims (1) to show that the clinical interview method, in the tradition of Piaget and Vygotsky, is superior to standard assessments of children's thinking and (2) to help researchers and practitioners in psychology, education, and related fields learn to conduct clinical interviews and teach the method to students.
