Handbook of the Psychology of Interviewing Edited by Amina Memon, University of Southampton, UK and Ray Bull, University of Portsmouth, UK Although their aims may be diverse, most professionals need to collect information using interviews, whether it be for exploring an individual’s current attitudes or emotions, attempting to retrieve information from an individual’s memory, collecting data, or testing theories. The Handbook of the Psychology of Interviewing draws together leading researchers and professionals from a wide range of fields all sharing a common methodology: the interview. Together they provide a thorough exploration of the methodology, theory and practice of interviewing and offer extensive examples of each technique applied. Divided into five parts, the handbook commences with an examination of the role of diagnostic and assessment interviews in the clinical context. Part two focuses on the health and social sciences field and demonstrates how different types of interviews can be used to tackle specific theoretical questions and to gather detailed information about a particular topic. Part three concentrates on interview methodology in the investigation of sensitive issues such as sexual conduct and ethical dilemmas. Parts four and five examine the role of interviewing in organisational and forensic contexts. This authoritative and accessible handbook will benefit professionals in a wide range of disciplines including clinical, social, and forensic psychology, social work, medicine, counselling, statistics, and law.
