Description - P-ChIPS--Children's Interview for Psychiatric Syndromes--Parent Version by Elizabeth B. Weller

This manual presents an interview for detecting 20 childhood psychiatric disorders in children aged six to 18. The authors aim to develop an interview for diagnoising frequently-encountered behavioural problems. The Paretn Version of ChIPS essentially consists of the same interview text altered from second to third person to address the parent rather than the child. It should be useful in screening for disorders such as: attention deficit and hyperactivity; substance abuse; specific phobia; social phobia; acute stress; post-traumatic stress; bulimia; depression; dysthymia; hypomania; enuresis; and schizophrenia. The manual includes background about the interview's development; a training section providing specifications for preparing mental health paraprofessionals to administer it; questions written for a child's level that screen for 20 disorders; and a section devoted to scoring and analyzing results.
