Two samples of 5- and 6-year-olds were used to compare semi-structured and picture-aided interview methods for studying young children's fears. Findings indicated that the semi-structured interviews showed that young children are capable of expressing a much wider range of fears than had been assumed earlier. The picture-aided interviews revealed more fears related to social relations than did the semi-structured interviews. Both methods were recommended for research use. (Author/KB)
