She specializes in research and assessment of children's behavioral, emotional, and learning problems and is a member of the research team that developed the Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA). Dr. McConaughy is the author of over 60 journal articles and chapters and 8 books and assessment manuals. She is a Vermont licensed practicing psychologist and school psychologist and a nationally certified school psychologist. She has served on the editorial boards of professional journals in psychology and school psychology and was an associate editor of the School Psychology Review.


"In one indispensable volume, McConaughy combines pragmatic clinical strategies with insightful overviews of the research that underlies key interview topics. Her explanations bridge behavioral and traditional theoretical assessment frameworks, and are simultaneously clear enough for beginning interviewers and astute enough for experienced ones. The up-to-date examinations of bullying and sexual identity are invaluable. This book is a gem."--Beth Doll, PhD, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, College of Education and Human Sciences, University of NebraskaaEURO"Lincoln "Reproducible semistructured interviews are among the user-friendly features of this book. The breadth of coverage and attention to developmental issues distinguish it from other works on child clinical interviewing. This is an essential resource for school, clinical, and counseling psychologists, as well as guidance counselors and social workers who work with children and adolescents, and is an excellent text for graduate courses in these fields."--Jan N. Hughes, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, Texas A&M University "This book helps practitioners meet the highest research-based standards when interviewing children and adolescents. The second edition includes front-line topics and interview questions in critical areas of concern, such as suicide risk, school violence, and multicultural assessment. One addition that is particularly pertinent to practitioners is the coverage of bullying and victimization. The book is comprehensive and extremely practical."--Julie M. Bowen, PhD, NCSP, school psychologist, Canyons School District, Utah "McConaughy masterfully integrates theories and concepts concerning clinical interviewing into this engaging practitioner guide. Strengths of the book include the contextualization of clinical interviewing into multimethod assessment; the focus on interviewing children, parents and teachers; recurring case examples to illustrate concepts; and specific attention to the interpretation of interview data. The contributed chapters on assessing suicide and youth violence risks are welcome and timely. In my opinion, there is no better resource for clinical interviewing."--Robert J. Volpe, PhD, Department of Applied Psychology, Bouve College of Health Sciences, Northeastern University
