I offer workshops to clinicians, researchers as well as trainees on two structured interviews used to assess psychopathology. One of this workshop is a two-day training on the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV (SCID-I; First, Spitzer, Gibbon, and Williams, 1996). This instrument is used in order to assess categorically current and lifetime Axis I psychopathologies. The reliability of the SCID-I has been well-established and this instrument is widely used in research settings.

The second workshop offered is on the Anxiety Disorders Interview Schedule
for DSM-IV (ADIS-IV; Brown, DiNardo and Barlow). This instrument is a structured interview designed to assess for current episodes of anxiety disorders, and to permit differential diagnosis among the anxiety disorders according to DSM-IV criteria. The ADIS-IV also provides sufficient information to permit functional analysis of the anxiety disorders. In addition, sections to assess current mood, somatoform, and substance use disorders are included because of their high comorbitidy rate with anxiety disorder and because the presenting symtomatology of these disorders is often quite similar to that of the anxiety disorders. The ADIS-IV also contains screening questions for psychotic and conversion symptoms and familial psychiatric history. A more detailed section is included to ascertain the patient's medical and psychiatric treatment history.

Training consists of didactic presentations, question-and-answer sessions, supervised role-playing, demonstration of live SCID, and group supervision of SCID interviews. Both workshops are offered in english and french.
