Offers best-practice recommendations for assessing a comprehensive array of child and adolescent mental health problems and health risks. This text provides an overview of each disorder and describes methods and procedures that take into account the developmental, biological, familial, and cultural contexts of children's problems.
This work addresses two questions: what neurodevelopmental processes in children and adolescents could be altered so that mental disorders might be prevented? And what interventions or life experiences might be able to introduce such changes? The 20 chapters include contributions from key researchers in the area.
