Chapter 5 explores data collection and begins with a discussion of ‘collateral data’, the phrase used to designate written or verbally communicated information obtained from sources other than the respondent. It then outlines respondent interviews, special issues in forensic examination (competence to consent to hospitalization, examinees who do not participate fully in the assessment, evaluating children and adolescents), the use of structured diagnostic interviews, psychological testing, rating scales, symptom checklists and other structured assessment tools, medical diagnostic tests and data, and data collection forms.
