Fall 2008 not offered
This course may be repeated for credit.

This graduate practicum teaches the fundamental skills of clinical interviewing and introduces students to two semistructured research interviews, the structured clinical interview for DSM IV Diagnoses (SCID) and the eating disorder examination (EDE). Students also learn ethical conduct with human participants and how to manage critical incidents. Students will be introduced to the concepts and research strategies pertaining to reliability and validity of diagnostic interviews. Under the supervision of trained graduate students and the instructor, students will learn to administer SCID and EDE interviews to individuals recruited for the purpose of student training or for research studies conducted by the instructor. Students are required to complete the Human Participants Protection Education for Research Teams online course (http://www.nih.gov) prior to enrolling in the course. This course is intended for students with previous research experience who are ready to commit to an intensive training experience.
