Widely recognized as an authoritative resource, this book has been revised and updated with the latest research and techniques, including new material on telehealth services. Guidelines are provided for conducting thorough, developmentally informed interviews with K–12 students—and their parents and teachers—for multimethod assessment and intervention planning. Extensive case examples illustrate how to elicit information about school functioning, peer relations, emotional and behavioral difficulties, family situations, and adolescent concerns. Two guest authors have contributed chapters on suicide and violence risk assessments. In a convenient large-size format, the book includes over a dozen reproducible interviewing tools; purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
