Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry. LXXI, 1954: The Initial Interview. Willard J. Hendrickson, Robert H. Coffer, and Thomas N. Cross. Pp. 24-30.

The initial interview is the most opportune time for diagnosis, which is requisite for appropriate treatment. Attempts at psychotherapy in this interview must be of secondary importance. Diagnosis is best achieved by allowing the patient considerable freedom in developing his own themes, but guidance and specific inquiry should be used as necessary, preferably in the latter part of this unique interview.
