Abstract

There is growing dissatisfaction with current methods for rating affective symptoms in child and adolescent psychiatry. The need for additional reliable methods of evaluating mood disorders is significant. This annotation reviews the relative limitations of self-report and interview assessment techniques as contrasted with observationally based rating scales which offer additional advantages for assessment.
