During the clinical interview, I focus on gathering information about the client's symptoms, history, and current functioning. Some of the standardized assessment tools I've found helpful include the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HARS), and the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS). These tools can provide valuable quantitative data to support the clinical impressions gathered during the interview. Collecting collateral information from other sources helps me ensure that I have a well-rounded understanding of the client's needs and can make more informed decisions about their care.
