The first edition was published by McGraw-Hill in 1981. Greenspan lays the foundation for conducting the spontaneous, unstructured interview with the child, discussing such strategies as how to quietly allow the child's normative patterns to emerge, how to create a comfortable environment that will encourage expression, and how to systematically observe multiple dimensions of functioning in brief, often sporadic behaviors.

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.About the Author:
