Mash (psychology, U. of Calgary, Canada) and Barkley (psychiatry, State U. of New York Upstate Medical U. at Syracuse, and Medical U. of South Carolina) offer a text that contains recommendations for assessing child and adolescent mental health problems and risks. This edition focuses on the best practices rather than comprehensive reviews of methods and issues for evaluating behavior, mood, anxiety, developmental, and eating disorders, and suicide risk, and child abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse. Controversies in assessment, symptoms, impairments, and associated features are discussed. The group of North American contributors is made up of psychologists and psychiatrists, and individuals working in special education, addiction, and mental health. All chapters have been revised for this edition and six are new: on bipolar disorder, suicide and self-harming behaviors, posttraumatic stress disorder, early-onset schizophrenia, learning disabilities, and adolescent personality disorders. The text can be used for undergraduate and graduate courses in child assessment, psychopathology, and therapy, and by mental health clinicians and researchers. Both authors and subjects are indexed.
