Children and adolescents deemed "out of control" by parents and educators are among the most commonly referred for professional care. Increased professional and public interest in these children has sparked a proliferation of research focusing on etiologic, diagnostic, and research issues of disruptive behavior disorders.

Bringing clinical practice up to date with these many new advances in an unusually accessible format, the book presents a practical, psychometrically sound, treatment-relevant method of assessment that reflects the state of the art.
