While the book is specifically aimed at the child clinician, those of us who treat adult . Stanley I. Greenspan, .

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. 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.

Stanley Greenspan (June 1, 1941 – April 27, 2010) was a clinical professor of Psychiatry, Behavioral Science, and Pediatrics at George Washington University Medical School and a practicing child psychiatrist.

Stanley I. He was previously Chief of the Mental Health Study Center and Director of the Clinical Infant Development Program at the National Institute of Mental Health

The authors use a developmental approach to clearly illustrate normative patterns for the child from birth to age 10 and explore differences in chronologic-age and phase-appropriate behavior for each observational category. These patterns are richly illustrated with 18 case studies.
Overall, I have to give this book 5/5. Chapter 2 (Framework for the Systematic Observation of the Child) with the more-detailed breakdown of what is expected at the different ages (up until 10 years old) has been presented to me as the 'gold standard' of how to assess the cross-sectional mental state of children. Certainly the categories make much more sense than trying to apply the adult Mental State Examination and the book emphasises the vital neurodevelopmental aspects and the childhood anxieties that might otherwise be forgotten about. Whilst Chapter 1 uses language that I am unfamiliar with, the case vignettes in Chapter 4 make the framework crystal clear
Did not realize how old it was before I purchased it. but has good information in it.
Haven't finished this book yet, but the discussion on how to observe and assess a child in the first meeting is one of the best I've read. I'm eager to get back to it.
