Structured Clinical Interview for Sleep Disorders – Revised (SCISD-R)

Tech ID:

The Structured Clinical Interview for Sleep Disorders-Revised (SCISD-R) is a semi-structured interview for diagnosing sleep disorders according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5; American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The SCISD-R was developed to allow clinicians to systematically obtain a sleep history, diagnose certain sleep disorders, screen for sleep disorders that require additional objective assessment for a diagnosis, and gauge the relative contribution of psychological, behavioral, environmental, and medical factors to sleep disorders when relevant. It is designed to be administered by a clinician or trained health professional who is familiar with DSM-5 sleep disorder classifications and diagnostic criteria. In addition, the interviewer should have basic knowledge regarding psychological and biological mechanisms of sleep and wakefulness as well as familiarity with conducting structured interviews.
