MAIN POST Adolescent Hispanic/Latino boy living in a middle-class suburb I will start the interview by acknowledging the patient and also speaking with the parents of the patient. I will get information about the patient’s family history from the parents and the patient. I will use the opportunity with the parents present to discuss what is happening in the day-to-day experiences with the patient. Then I will ask for the parents to be excused so that I could speak privately with the patient.
