About this Textbook

As demand for psychological services continues to increase, assessment of personality and behavior continues to be a central activity. And when dealing with children and adolescents, psychological assessment can present even greater challenges. Therefore, this text – now in its second edition – provides a welcome and timely review of personality and behavior in children and adolescents within a context of the psychological knowledge base necessary for contemporary assessment practice.

The text is organized into three sections, consistent with the authors’ approach to teaching:

 - Part I provides students with the psychological knowledge base necessary for modern assessment practice, including historical perspectives, measurement science, child psychopathology, ethical, legal, and cultural issues, and the basics of beginning the assessment process.

 - Part II gives students a broad review of the specific assessment methods used by psychologists, accompanied by specific advice regarding the usage and strengths and weaknesses of each method.

 - Part III helps students learn to perform some of the most sophisticated of assessment practices: integrating and communicating assessment results and infusing assessment practice with knowledge of child development and psychopathology.

Although the volume is designed primarily as a text for beginning graduate students, Clinical Assessment of Child and Adolescent Personality and Behavior is also useful as a "refresher" for clinicians who are looking for updated personality and behavior assessment information.
