"Interviewing is the principal diagnostic and therapeutic tool of modern psychiatry. More an art than a science, the interviewing process is difficult to describe and the skill of interviewing is difficult to teach. Recent developments in the field of sound recording and filming made the collection of raw data on the interview possible. The introduction of sound recording into the field of psychiatry gave us a technique which permitted a more operational and pragmatic approach, opening up new possibilities for research and teaching. The establishment of a high fidelity sound recording laboratory at Yale permitted us to record and observe many interviews and collect data for the present volume. To our knowledge, this is the first systematic attempt to publish combined printed word and sound record for didactic and scientific purposes in the field of psychiatry. By listening to the records, the printed account of the interview becomes alive. We chose the initial interview as the area of our investigation. The initial interview as we present it here deals primarily with psychological data. We chose three patients to present in this volume. Two of them were suffering from psychoneuroses which led them to seek help in our Psychiatric Dispensary; one was a schizophrenic woman hospitalized in a public mental hospital. Our procedure consisted of listening, observing and recording the interviews of many patients and therapists and finally choosing a few interviews which seemed to be best suited for teaching purposes. The book is primarily addressed to psychiatrists, but as the material is about interviewing we hope that it will be of use to social workers and behavioral scientists as well. Besides the three interviews, we have included a chapter which critically surveys the literature on interviewing, with particular reference to the initial interview; a chapter expressing our theoretical viewpoint and our conclusions about the technique of the initial interview; and a final chapter on sound recording"--Introduction.
