Biobehavioral Assessment

Singer, L.T. and Zeskind, P.S. (Eds.). 

Biobehavioral Assessment of the Infant

New York, Guilford Publications, April, 2001.

ISBN: 1572306696
Format: Hardcover, 476pp

(click here for order form)

SYNOPSIS

The 22 papers in this collection, by Ph.Ds at US universities, are grouped into topics which concern methodological issues, prenatal growth and sensory development, assessments of arousal and regulation, cognitive and attentional processes, and a review of standard developmental assessments.

Individual papers consider the paired-comparison paradigm in assessing attentional encoding and memory, case studies in focused attention, the relation of temperament to physiological measurements, the evolutionary biological perspectives of attachment theory in Strange Situation assessment, and evidence for the role of changes in cortisol levels as a reflection of the attachment relationship.

Both editors teach pediatrics and psychiatry: Singer at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Zeskind at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Recent decades have seen the emergence of many new biobehavioral assessment tools for the newborn and young infant. These instruments have tremendous utility for scientists and practitioners engaged in exploring basic questions of development, studying medical and developmental conditions that place infants at risk, diagnosing the severity of biobehavioral insult, and evaluating the effectiveness of ameliorative interventions. Yet until now there has been no single volume providing an organized, critical examination of available assessment tools.

Filling a crucial gap in the literature, this book describes a wide range of approaches to evaluating growth, sensation, arousal, regulation, learning, and attention in the prenatal period and the first year of life. Leading experts describe the historical background and development of each tool; review its diagnostic, methodological, and conceptual utility; highlight strengths and limitations for different uses; and consider broader implications for understanding the development of infants at risk.

ANNOTATION

Provides information necessary to detect psychosocial problems, such as drug-abuse, gang involvement, psychoses, etc.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Adolescence - the bridge between childhood and adulthood - represents a significant developmental period characterized by marked changes in physiology, cognition, and behavior. For those in the field of human services, working with adolescents represents a particular challenge, as the transition from childhood is often fraught with difficulties.

Accidents, homicide, and suicide - the three leading causes of death among adolescents - are all largely preventable and are directly related to psychosocial and developmental issues. The challenges of identifying and addressing adolescents' developmental needs, health, mental health, and social problems span many disciplines. For example, school counselors need to understand reproductive health issues and how to recognize depression, for they may be the first called on to provide preliminary evaluation of a psychotic teenager who has disrupted a classroom.

Nurses and social workers who work in urban hospital emergency departments frequently encounter youths who are involved in gang violence and substance abuse, who are depressed, who have attempted suicide, or who have been sexually assaulted. Youth workers and probation officers need to recognize the multiple problems in which their charges may be involved, such as sexual risk-taking, substance abuse, delinquency, and violence.

This handbook provides all the information necessary for all professionals working with adolescents to understand and recognize their major psychosocial problems. Each chapter is written by an experienced clinician or research scientist who is a recognized expert in his or her field. Topics include family problems, substance abuse, head injury, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, suicide, gang involvement, antisocial behavior, reproductive health, sexual and physical abuse, eating disorders, and psychosis.
