There are three vital components of the psychiatric interview, this include the development of an
effective relationship with participants this involves getting certain useful information from the
participants and enquiring if the patients has any questions in particular or any other concern that they
may have failed to highlight. The other important component is developing an effective relationship
with the participants and enquiring about the present concern or issue that is what exactly prompted
the patient to go for their first visit. Some patients disclose their experiences without any support from
the person conducting the interview, while others need comprehensive questions to help them control
their ideas. Elicit descriptive data, such as a history of the issues and concerns, relevant health
information, family history, social background, and specific symptoms and behavioral trends. The
mental health of the patient is then formally assesed, and asked a few questions to find out if they have
any unsaid thoughts or worries. The patient is then offered preliminary guidance on how to proceed
with additional evaluation and treatment. This allows you to build a therapeutic relationship with the
patient and collect, organize, and formulate a differential diagnosis, which is the aim of a psychiatric
interview, as well as an appropriate treatment plan for that patient.
PCL checklist is a very important checklist for PTSD sypmtoms which are closelt based a criteria known
as DSM-IV. Each item is rated by the respondent from 1 to 5 to show or indicate the extent to which
they have been bothered over the past month.In the rating, 1 is “not at all” and level 5 is
“extreme”.From a study conducted, the sample comprised of a total of 392 participants in college aged
18 years and above.The PCL-C demonstated good cood consistency internally and retest reliability.When
compared with other alternative measures of PTSD, the PCL showed patterns of converegent and
discriminat validity which are favourable. According to the findings, both 1-factor and 2-factor models of
PTSD symptoms can be supported.
Overally,the PCL appears to be a good measure of PTSD symptoms,even in samples that appear to be
non clinical.It is also superior to some other PTSD measures. Not all of the PTSD symptoms will be
reflected in the factor structure of nonclinical samples. With a wider range of clinically and empirically
relevant knowledge about accessible assessment tools, mental health professionals will become more
likely than they are now to use measures that have been appropriately psychometrically established.
Assorted circumstances necessitate for the use of psychometrically sound testing.
