The ASEBA Semi-structured Clinical Interview for Children and Adolescents (SCICA) for 6-18 year olds maximises the value of interviews with a flexible user-friendly protocol, plus forms on which interviewers rate their observations and children's self-reports during the interview.
It includes instructions, a protocol of questions and probes, observation and self-report forms for rating what the child does and says during the interview, and profiles for scoring ratings. The forms are scorable by the interviewer or observers.
