Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Geri R. Donenberg, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: The third edition of this book covers a wide array of childhood disorders including: behavioral, such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder; emotional and social, such as depression and anxiety; developmental and health-related, such as mental retardation and brain injury; children at risk; and problems in adolescence. Each chapter reviews clinical background, diagnostic criteria, theory, and varied assessment approaches (self reports, observational) from a behavioral systems perspective. A major focus is on the family and the broader social environment as a context for understanding child psychopathology, assessment, and intervention.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an updated and comprehensive examination of the research literature in the conceptualization and assessment of childhood disorders. The emphasis is on assessment practices that can be used to inform clinical interventions. The editors' objectives are very important, and they accomplish their goals.
Audience: This book is written for professionals who work with children and their families, students, and clinicians in applied settings who wish to introduce new assessment procedures in their work. The book also provides a compendium of empirically supported outcome measures for clinicians who wish to evaluate treatment effects. Chapter contributors include knowledgeable and recognized experts in the field.
Features: Chapters are consistently well organized and include multiple headings for easy reading. Tables and figures supplement the text. Reference lists are extensive and recent; most citations are from the 1990s. A subject and author index is provided.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in the assessment of childhood disorders. Chapters provide critical reviews of specific self-report and observational assessment techniques well-grounded in theory and based on recent empirical data. Coverage of disorders is thorough, comprehensive, and illuminating. This book is sure to become one of the definitive texts in the field.
