by Paul J. Frick, Clinical Assessment Of Child And Adolescent Personality And Behavior Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Clinical Assessment Of Child And Adolescent Personality And Behavior books, Psychologists offer an increasing variety of services to the public. Among these services, psychological assessment of personality and behavior continues to be a central activity. One main reason is that other mental health professionals often do not possess a high level of competence in this area. And when dealing with children and adolescents, psychological assessment seems to take on an even greater role. Therefore, it follows that comprehensive graduate-level instruction in assessment should be a high priority for educators of psychologists who will work with these youth. This textbook 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. In Part III, we help students 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 to assess some of the most common types of behavioral and emotional disorders in youth. A text focusing on assessment practices must be updated every four to six years to keep pace with advances in test development. For example, several of the major tests reviewed in the text, such as the Behavioral Assessment System for Children and the Child Behavior Checklist, have undergone major revisions since the publication of the last edition making the current content outdated. Further, another major test, the Conners’ Rating Scales, is undergoing substantial revisions that should be completed before publication of the next edition. Finally, the evidence for the validity of the tests and the recommendations for their appropriate use evolve as research accumulates and requires frequent updating to remain current. For example, there was a special issue of the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology published focusing on evidenced-based assessment of the major forms of childhood psychopathology that will need to be integrated into the chapters in Part 3. This latter point reflects an important trend in the field that should influence the marketing of the book. That is, there are several initiatives being started in all of the major areas of applied psychology (e.g., school, clinical, and counseling) to promote evidenced-based assessment practices. These initiatives have all emphasized the need to enhance the training of graduate students in this approach to assessment. This has been the orientation of this textbook from its first edition: that is, Clinical Assessment of Child and Adolescent Personality and Behavior has focused on using research to guide all recommendations for practice. The ability of the textbook to meet this training need should be an important focus of marketing the book to training programs across all areas of applied psychology.
by Kenneth W. Merrell, Behavioral Social And Emotional Assessment Of Children And Adolescents Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Behavioral Social And Emotional Assessment Of Children And Adolescents books, Behavioral, Social, and Emotional Assessment of Children and Adolescents, Second Edition was written to provide a comprehensive foundation for conducting clinical assessment of child and adolescent social-emotional behavior in a practical, scientific, and culturally appropriate manner. It is divided into two major sections. Part I includes eight chapters that provide a general foundation for assessment practice. These chapters include coverage of basic professional and ethical issues, classification and diagnostic problems, and six primary assessment methods, which are presented in detail. Part II includes six chapters on applications for assessing specific social-emotional behavior domains, including internalizing and externalizing problems, social skills and peer relations, young children, and diverse cultural groups. Together, these two sections provide a framework for a model of assessment that is practical, flexible, sensitive to specific needs, and empirically sound. Changes in the second edition of this book include: increased coverage of the practice of functional behavior assessment; updated test reviews; reviews of new assessment instruments; updated information on legal and ethical issues; updated information on assessment and cultural diversity; and a handy appendix with contact information for all publishers of instruments discussed in the book, including Web site addresses. To the greatest extent possible, this book weaves together the most recent research evidence and common application issues. It is specifically relevant to practitioners and researchers in the fields of school psychology and child clinical psychology, but will also be of interest to those in related disciplines, such as counseling, social work, child psychiatry, and special education.

by Sara Whitcomb, Behavioral Social And Emotional Assessment Of Children And Adolescents Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Behavioral Social And Emotional Assessment Of Children And Adolescents books, Generally recognized as the standard work in its field, Behavioral, Social, and Emotional Assessment of Children and Adolescents provides a comprehensive foundation and guide for conducting conceptually sound, culturally responsive, and ecologically-oriented assessments of student social and emotional behavior. It is aimed at graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in the fields of school psychology, child clinical psychology, and special education, but will also be of interest to those in related disciplines such as counseling psychology, child psychiatry, and social work. Keeping intact many of the same premises and pedagogy of the previous editions, this revised and updated fourth edition has been re-organized to emphasize culturally responsive reflective practice, with added content including updated assessment tools and strategies to be used within a Response to Intervention (RtI) framework. In addition to updating all chapters to reflect current research and data, authors Sara Whitcomb and Kenneth Merrell move away from a more narrow view of social skills to reflect an expanded notion of strengths-based assessment, which includes such traits as coping skills, resilience, problem-solving ability, emotional knowledge, and empathy. Throughout, they strive to increase professional standards in the practice of psychological and educational assessment of children and adolescents, providing a solid, evidence-based foundation for assessment.
