Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This hands-on guide is designed to help school practitioners conduct effective multidimensional assessments of a wide range of emotional and behavioral difficulties. Each chapter focuses on a particular method, describes its applications in the school setting, and offers clear guidelines for implementation, illustrated with realistic case examples. Approaches discussed include direct observation, analogue assessment, child self-reports, teacher and parent interviewing, informant reports, and self-monitoring procedures. Recommendations for working with culturally and linguistically diverse children and adolescents are also provided.

Book News Annotation:

Shapiro (school psychology, education and human services, Lehigh University) and Kratochwill (school psychology, University of Wisconsin-Madison) guide readers through the continuum of direct and indirect methodologies that can be used to obtain a full picture of a student's functioning. Approaches include direct observation, analogue assessment, child self-reports, teacher and parent interviews, informant reports, and self-monitoring procedures. Each chapter focuses on a particular method, describes its applications in the school setting, and outlines the steps involved in implementation.
