Social phobia and anxiety inventory: manual. Toronto, Ont.: Multi-Health Systems Inc.), the Social Phobia Scale (SPS [Mattick, R. P. & Clarke, J. C. (1998).

Seventy-five subjects were interviewed using the interviewer-administered version of the CIDI. Their clinician(s) then completed diagnostic(More)
The British Association for Psychopharmacology guidelines for the treatment of substance abuse, harmful use, addiction and comorbidity with psychiatric disorders primarily focus on their pharmacological management.

For patients first presenting with a non-affective psychotic disorder, the duration of untreated psychosis (DUP; the time between the onset of positive psychotic symptoms and the initiation of appropriate treatment) varies widely, from a few weeks to several years. A number of studies report that a longer DUP is associated with poorer clinical outcomes. We(More)
BACKGROUND The equivalency of the Composite International Diagnostic Interview delivered by human interviewers (CIDI) and its computerized version (CIDI-Auto) was examined for anxiety and depressive disorders. METHODS Subjects were 40 patients at an Anxiety Disorders Clinic and 40 general medical practice attenders. The CIDI-Auto and CIDI were(More)
The relationship between and the inter-rater reliability of the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) and the Schedules for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry (SCAN) for anxiety and depressive disorders were explored. The CIDI and the SCAN were administered by trained interviewers in counterbalanced order. A subsample of interviews was(More)
The assumption that participants receiving an ICD10 diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) will also receive a DSM-IV diagnosis of PTSD was tested. Data were gathered for 1,364 participants using the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI). The 12-month prevalence of PTSD was 3% for DSM-IV and 7% for ICD10 Diagnostic Criteria for(More)
