Various approaches and conditions are considered when interviewing the child or an adult about their psychiatric conditions. A child is an innocent person who needs to be approached in a way where they feel comfortable and safe to talk about themselves. In the psychiatric interview, the adult and the child are asked to talk about what they are going through. The patient is given the lead and talks about whatever they feel is the problem. Giving the patient both the child and the children allows them to create trust and a sense of open communication. When in an interview, the psychiatrist’s approach is to ensure open communication and that there has been trust generated between the patient and the psychiatrist. According to Aboraya et al. (2016), after giving the patient the lead to talk about their challenge, the psychiatrist starts to screen for symptoms and try to come up with a diagnosis according to the question the psychiatrist asks. For the interview, the main approach is to create trust, and after the trust is created, open communication clears up, making it easy to come up with a diagnosis.
According to Riesco et al. (2018), a person with other specified eating or feeding disorders (OSFED) may be experiencing such disorders due to mental problems. They may be depressed or have low self-esteem, and therefore they develop the habit of eating or not eating for comfort. Taking this approach, the clinician needs to know the emotional strength of the patient and then ask the questions the right way. The approach in the OSFED case asks more about self-esteem and personal questions about the patient. It is different for the psychiatric case because they may not be aware of what they have done to deserve mental health, but the OSFED case knows that there is a case that may have contributed to the eating disorder. There are changes in the development between the two cases. Both cases develop in a different cases. The OSFED case improves their self-esteem, while in the psychiatric case, the patient learns some of the life hacks they were unaware of. Monitoring is important as the development stage is assessed through monitoring (Page et al., 2016).

Personally, I have seen in clinical a patient suffering from Bulimia. She was already diagnosed and came to office for follow up. She continues with Psychotherapy and remains stable now.
