CONSTRUCT A MORE HOLISTIC PICTURE OF A CHILD'S ABILITIES BY INTERVIEWING FOR STRENGTHS "This state-of-the-art book provides a wealth of valuable, insightful, and practical information on conducting effective clinical interviews. Each chapter is clearly written, provides excellent case examples, and contains critical takeaway points. Students, early-career professionals, and seasoned clinicians will become better interviewers by reading this book. It is an excellent resource that should be required reading for all school psychologists, school counselors, and students training to become them." —David N. Miller, Ph.D., author of Child and Adolescent Suicidal Behavior: School-Based Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention "In contrast to diagnostic assessments that focus on what is missing and wrong, the practical interviewing methods in this book expand the assessment process to include student strengths, resources, and nuances that paint a more holistic and useful picture of students and their struggles—a picture that increases intervention options and solution opportunities. Dr. Hass's extensive experience as a practitioner and teacher are evident in the many examples and dialogues throughout the book. This is a must read for graduate students and school-based practitioners wishing to incorporate respectful, student-centered interviews into their assessments." —John J. Murphy, Ph.D., author of Solution-Focused Counseling in Schools Interviewing for Assessment offers school-based professionals a practical primer on essential interview skills, using a uniquely collaborative, strengths-based approach. Although strengths are sometimes evaluated as part of a student assessment, the lack of a systematic approach to interviewing for strengths means these assets are often neglected. This book gives practitioners the knowledge and skill set they need to conduct more effective interviews and incorporate the information gathered into a comprehensive assessment or intervention plan. Case studies illustrate critical steps in diagnosis, goal setting, and intervention planning, while practice exercises, sample reports, checklists, and more provide practical tools for implementation. The interview is a powerful information gathering tool, but it requires a unique blend of interpersonal skills and professional knowledge. Interviewing for Assessment helps practitioners master this important tool, enhancing their effectiveness and facilitating better student outcomes.
