    a clinical interview for a child suffering from temper tantrum

  • psychology -

    Temper tantrums need to be very severe to require a clinical interview. You would need to rule out any physical causes, so a physical exam might be required. If physical causes are involved, depending on the diagnosis by a physician, medications might be required.

    Depending upon what information is obtained from the interview, a battery of psychological tests might be administered.

    However, temper tantrums are usually trained by parents and/or caregivers, so retraining the caregivers might be necessary. See
