About this item

This guide describes how to interview and diagnose children and adolescents with mental health issues. After information on the basics, structuring the first interview, and development, chapters present transcripts of various types of interviews: an infant/toddler interview; interviews with school-age children using toys, drawing, and dolls; an interview with an adolescent; and a family interview. Each includes annotations on the goals, methods, and effectiveness, and the final chapter in this section addresses the written report. The next section contains DSM-5 (fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) diagnoses applicable to children and adolescents, with basic information on the presentation, demographics, and possible causes; essential features of the DSM-5 criteria; age-specific interviewing techniques; and differences in presentation at various developmental stages. This edition has been revised to reflect the ICD-10-CM (International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification), and it has current terminology and codes, updated case examples, new disorders and vignettes, and a new reproducible questionnaire for parents.
