Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

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.
