Overview

This volume provides new insights into conceptualizing and assessing children's behaviour problems, and describes new approaches to improving care and accountability.

The authors' psychometric technique for assessing psychopathology, involving the use of standardized instruments for collecting and scoring data, results in profiles that can be compared with reference samples of children's peers. In this expanded new edition, Achenbach and Mc Conaughy present their improvements on this approach, including revised scales based on the latest data. Detailed case examples demonstrate the practical, clinical applications of the approach.
