The paper examines the interrater reliability of the Diagnostic Interview for Children and Adolescents-Revised (DICA-R). The study was held over a total of 45 interviews in which an interviewer and an observer participated. The trainning program is exhaustively described. The results show that DICA-R is an objective instrument that can be used by lay persons if a proper training takes place. Strictness in interrater reliability designs is encouraged.
