Summer Training Session
The Survey Research Center (SRC) of the Institute for Social Research (ISR) at the University of Michigan is designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a Training and Reference Center (TRC) for the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI). The CIDI is a fully-structured psychiatric diagnostic interview that is designed to be used by trained interviewers who are not clinicians and to yield diagnoses according to the definitions and criteria of both the ICD-10 and the DSM-IV diagnostic systems. The WHO-CIDI web site URL is http://www3.who.int/cidi.
II. Workshop in the WHO CIDI Diagnostic Interview
The SRC offers CIDI training workshops each summer in the use of Version 3.0 of the CIDI. The courses are appropriate for principal investigators who hope to use the CIDI in research projects, study managers who will be in charge of implementing research projects, data analysts who will be working with data generated from CIDI studies, and interviewers.
The workshop addresses issues in data collection, editing, coding, and data cleaning and provides hands-on experience in the administration of the CIDI.
