0 Reviews
This volume addresses the question of assessment (before, during and after treatment), an all-important ingredient in helping children and adolescents with problems. It incorporates the essence of the author's influential earlier work Assessing Problem Children, while taking full account of the significant changes, both in practice and philosophy, that have occurred in the interim.

Hoghughi provides a comprehensive practice manual for those working in all relevant settings: health, education, the criminal justice system and social services. Uniquely, his approach encompasses the full range of child and adolescent problems - physical and educational, home and family, social skills, anti-social and psychological disorders - to give a coherent, holistic picture of the assessment process.

Page 13 - A more serious criticism of assessment of children with problems is that it results in labels which exceed, in the damage they do, the benefits to the children or those who want to know what can be legitimately done to help them.
Page 14 - The assessor is usually an adult in a position of power and the assessed child is relatively powerless, and in a minority position.
