Diagnostic Assessment in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology Summary

Diagnostic Assessment in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology by Christopher P. Lucas

Unique in the breadth and depth of its coverage, this volume reviews the principal methods for assessing psychopathology in children aged 6-17. Chapters from pre-eminent scholars describe interviewer- and respondent-based diagnostic interviews; scales and interviews used for specific disorders, such as the disruptive, anxiety, and pervasive developmental disorders; and key biological measures. Also addressed are the empirical and theoretical bases of DSM-IV and ICD-10 classifications, cross-cultural and developmental issues, the assessment of family impairment history, and retrospective adult assessment of childhood. This book provides up-to-date knowledge that is central to effective clinical and research practice.

Diagnostic Assessment in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology Reviews

"Edited and authored by a team of internationally recognized experts, this volume will be of much interest and practical use. Clinicians will value it as a guide to structured methods of assessment, often used in research, that have found new applications in clinical practice. Researchers in child and adolescent psychopathology will benefit from the update it provides on new methods and applications. Because it is an extremely helpful reference, this book will not gather dust on shelves. Further, it is the ideal volume with which to introduce graduate students, psychology interns, and psychiatry residents to key issues in the diagnosis of children and adolescents." --Stephen V. Faraone, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Associate Editor, Neuropsychiatric Genetics

"In the past 10 years we have seen tremendous progress in the study of childhood psychiatric diagnoses. This volume will be an essential handbook for researchers in developmental psychopathology, as well as child and adolescent psychiatry residents, psychology interns, and other advanced students in mental health, public health, and developmental and behavioral pediatrics. Chapters written by leaders in the field include summaries and critical evaluations of the current status of diagnostic interviews, behavior rating scales, biological measures, and instruments to measure functional impairment. The volume also addresses key issues in retrospective assessment, family history, and cultural influences. This book should be available in every medical school and pediatric hospital library." --Mina K. Dulcan, MD, Osterman Professor of Child Psychiatry Northwestern University Medical School, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago, Illinois

"This volume is greatly to be welcomed because it provides a clear account of the numerous ways in which methods of psychopathological assessment have advanced over the last dozen years or so, and because it outlines some of the challenges that remain to be met....There is no better account of the tools of the trade' that may be used in both clinical research and clinical practice." --From the Foreword by Professor Sir Michael Rutter, FRS, Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK

"Very few 'must reads' have come onto the scene of child and adolescent psychopathology in the last decade. This, however, is such a book. Chapters have been assembled by leading authorities, and constitute pithy, purposeful reviews of what is known in the field--and what still needs to be known. The volume is comprehensive in scope and penetrating in depth. For postdoctoral students of child psychiatry and child psychology, as well as researchers and clinicians intent on staying abreast of new developments, this one is a 'keeper.'" --Peter S. Jensen, MD, National Institute of Mental Health
