Subsequent chapters synthesize the developmental bases of specific disorders.

This volume describes cutting-edge methods and strategies for assessing a comprehensive array of childhood disorders, child health risks, and adolescent problems. Contributors highlight the ongoing interplay among behaviors, cognitions, and affects as they unfold within the young person's social network. Each chapter presents a conceptual framework for understanding the problem at hand, discusses assessment procedures that can be used to inform clinical interventions, and reviews the available empirical data. A major emphasis is placed on the family and the broader social environment, both as a context for understanding the child's strengths and weaknesses and as a focus for assessment and intervention. Also addressed are such contemporary themes as the need for developmental and cultural sensitivity in assessment, combining categorical diagnosis with dimensional classification, assessment as a decision-making process, and prevention-oriented assessments.
This highly accessible work, now thoroughly revised, has shown thousands of students and clinicians how to assess and treat children's emotional and behavioral difficulties from a developmental perspective.

Chapters on common psychological disorders and family stressors describe the nature of each problem, review evidence-based treatments, and offer step-by-step guidelines for intervention, illustrated with helpful case examples. A comprehensive framework for assessing children and planning treatment is used throughout.
