Show Summary Details

Preview

The psychological assessment of children and youth has undergone some of the greatest developments, and those developments are the focus of this Handbook. The volume is organized primarily, but not exclusively, around clinical and psychoeducational assessment issues. It revisits the foundations that underlie current psychological assessment practices. Linked with these foundations are chapters addressing some of the fundamental principles of child assessment that focus on ability, achievement, behavior, and personality. Theory offers guidance in practice when techniques change, new methods are introduced, and new data are presented, as well as when psychologists encounter new presenting issues and circumstances with patients, or when asked new questions by referral sources; some specific examples are provided in the fourth section of this volume. The book hopes to see theory integrated with research and practice to enable readers to view the articles in this book, as well as future publications, not just more profitably but critically as well.
