This instructive clinical resource has given thousands of clinicians and students essential skills for evaluating infants through adolescents with any type of mental health issue. Principles for conducting age-appropriate clinical interviews with children of varying ages and their parents—including the use of toys, drawing, dolls, and other forms of play—are illustrated with annotated sample transcripts. The book provides crucial information for accurately diagnosing a wide range of mental and behavioral disorders. User-friendly features include concise explanations of diagnostic criteria, coding notes, interview pointers for specific disorders, vivid vignettes, and a sample written report.
