How Many More Questions?: Techniques for Clinical Interviews of Young Medically Ill Children provides readers with a comprehensive framework to understand how 5-10 year old children use language to formulate and communicate their thoughts. The book then guides the reader in how to effectively elicit information about sensitive and stressful topics from young children, such as their emotions, difficulties, problems, worries, and illness. Seventeen exquisitely written chapters that include twelve developmental guidelines, techniques, case examples, and illustrative dialogues provide the reader with the tools needed to address specific communication challenges involved in speaking with young children who have pain, medical trauma, terminal illness, or specific disorders like epilepsy. How Many More Questions? is useful for pediatric professionals who strive to acquire exceptional clinical interviewing skills and who no longer wish to hear children say, "When are we done?"
The wide range of medical and non-medical professionals who work with young ill children, such as pediatricians, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, social workers, nurses, child life specialists, as well as interested parents will use this book as a reference guide.
