Five Stages of the Routines-Based Interview

The Routines-Based Interview (RBI), as defined by McWilliam, was first described in Family-Centered Intervention Planning: A Routines-Based Approach (McWilliam, 1992). Five stages of the process were delineated as follows:

  1. Family and staff preparation for the interview
  2. The routines-based interview itself
  3. Outcome selection by the family
  4. Writing of objectives and strategies by professionals with family input
  5. Review in subsequent months

After you have completed the short exercise on the next page, you will learn more about each of the above steps in the Routines-Based Interview process in the following sections.
