(Reusable interview administration booklet)

Based on strict DSM-IV criteria and validated in 12 years of studies, ChIPS and P-ChIPS -- the parent version of the interview -- are brief and simple to administer. Questions are succinct, simply worded, and easily understood by children and adolescents. Practitioners in clinical and research settings alike have already found ChIPS indispensable in screening for conditions such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorder, substance abuse, phobias, anxiety disorders, stress disorders, eating disorders, mood disorders, elimination disorders, and schizophrenia.
