Clinical Skills III: Clinical Interview for the DSM IV (SCID I and SCID II)
Full course description
The aim of this training is for students to become acquainted with the semi-structured clinical interviews for DSM-IV-Tr Axis I (SCID I) and Axis II (SCID II) and the changes in DSM-5 (SCID 1 and 2) classifications. During the training, students receive background information and practical tips about structured clinical interviewing. Furthermore, after having observed the practice of interviewing and scoring (teacher/video material), students will practice several aspects of the SCID interviews themselves. Special emphasis lies on comparing the patient's answer to a question and the clinical judgement of stating whether or not a certain behavioral criterion is met. In addition, attention will be paid to the interpretation of findings and the explanation of outcomes to clients. To conclude, differences between the DSM-IV and DSM-5 classifications will be addressed.
