The assessment of psychiatrically ill children and adolescents has progressed dramatically in the last decade. This timely edited volume chronicles many advances and will prove a handy resource for psychiatrists and other mental health professionals interested in the assessment, diagnosis, and related treatment of children and adolescents. The book is divided into 3 sections: “Processes and Techniques,” “Disorders of Behaviors, Emotions, and Communications,” and “Special Interventions With Children and Adolescents.” For a quick yet adequately comprehensive approach to assessing a particular disorder, the book is useful to have at hand.
