Designed by the pioneers of structured interviewing, the "Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis II Personality Disorders (SCID-II)" is a user-friendly instrument that should help researchers and clinicians make standardized, reliable and accurate diagnoses of the 10 DSM-IV Axis II personality disorders as well as depressive personality disorder, passive-aggressive personality disorder, and personality disorder not otherwise specified. Now compatible with DSM-IV, the interview questions have been redesigned to reflect the subject's inner experience. This instrument begins with a brief overview that characterizes the subject's typical behaviour and relationships and elicits information about the subject's capacity for self-reflection. It then considers each of the personality disorders in detail. SCID-II contains the following tools that can be ordered separately or in sets. The "User's Guide" provides instructions on how to use the SCID-II effectively. It contains sections describing the rationale and structure of the SCID-II and a detailed item-by-item commentary on the SCID-II. A sample case is also included to help clinicians learn to use the SCID-II.
The "Questionnaire" is a single-use personality questionnaire to be completed by the patient that can be used as a screening tool to shorten the interview. Bound separately, it is sold only with the Interview booklet. The "Interview" is a single-use booklet that is bound separately but used in conjunction with the Questionnaire. It contains the interview questions and provides space to record responses. At the conclusion of the Interview, the clinician completes the Summary Scoresheet and computes a dimensional score for each personality disorder.
