Developmental Considerations for the Interview Process

text A A A

Sections

Excerpt

In middle childhood, the specific roles of the parent and child in the process may vary with different clinical situations. It is therefore helpful to discuss the clinician's interview plan with the presenting family members and to ask for input from the parents. It is appropriate to ask them whether they would prefer to begin the substantive discussions in the presence of their child or separately. It is also helpful to ask the parents for input about what will make their child feel more comfortable: sitting in the room; remaining in the waiting room; or sitting nearby, outside of the office.
