Caleb is a 10-year-old boy who is referred for assessment because

he is not following any of the rules of discipline at home. His parents report that they have had three separate nannies resign in the last 4 months because Caleb is unmanageable. This is a long-standing problem, going back to daycare even before kindergarten. The PMHNP knows that when conducting her initial interview of Caleb she should:

A. Anticipate that he can tolerate up to a 45-minute session
B. Consider that symbolic play with dolls will be informative
C. Interview him alone before involving the parents
D. Be clear that he is there because of problem behavior
