Generally recognized as the standard work in its field, Behavioral, Social, and Emotional Assessment of Children and Adolescents provides a comprehensive foundation and guide for conducting conceptually sound, culturally responsive, and ecologically-oriented assessments of student social and emotional behavior. It is aimed at graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in the fields of school psychology, child clinical psychology, and special education, but will also be of interest to those in related disciplines such as counseling psychology, child psychiatry, and social work. Keeping intact many of the same premises and pedagogy of the previous editions, this revised and updated fourth edition has been re-organized to emphasize culturally responsive reflective practice, with added content including updated assessment tools and strategies to be used within a Response to Intervention (RtI) framework.
