Review quote

"This beautifully lucid volume provides the best guide I know for assessing and understanding the developing child in all the dimensions of mental life and behavior. In the grand tradition of Anna Freud, Erikson, Mahler and Piaget, Greenspan's developmental structural approach provides a nuanced and in-depth practical method for assessing the child at every stage of development, emphasizing the unevenness of developmental levels. Greenspan's view is compatible with all the major contemporary theoretical points of view--cognitive, psychodynamic, behavioral, and relational--subsuming them in his objective descriptions. While the book is specifically aimed at the child clinician, those of us who treat adult patients will be hugely informed by this map of child development. The clinical vignettes are compelling. This is a superb how-to-do-it book, as well as one of the best introductions to the theory of mental development that I know. The biopsychosocial model of psychiatry, so often talked about but so little implemented, is here carried out splendidly."-- "Arnold Cooper, M.D., Past President, American Psychoanalytic Association, Stephen P. Tobin and Dr. Arnold M. Cooper Professor Emeritus in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, New York"show more

Ideal for both novices and advanced practitioners, the new edition of Stanley Greenspan's classic guide outlines a practical process for observing and interviewing children -- and organizing and interpreting their unfolding communications. Unique and highly acclaimed, The Clinical Interview of the Child uses actual interviews with children to show readers how to apply a developmental, biopsychosocial framework for understanding the inner lives of children at different ages and stages. It outlines proven techniques for helping infants and children to reveal their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors during the clinical interview. Finally, it shows readers how to organize and interpret the interview data by constructing a developmental profile and translating it into DSM-IV-TR diagnostic categories. The third edition has been expanded and revised extensively, with updated theoretical and conceptual foundations; information on higher levels of ego development and reflective and thinking capacities of older children; and a new section on a developmental biopsychosocial model -- the developmental, individual-difference, relationship-based (DIR) approach. An invaluable educational and practical resource, The Clinical Interview of the Child, Third Edition, is an ideal tool for psychiatrists and psychologists, pediatricians, educators, social workers, and judges and attorneys dealing with children and families.show more
