SUMMARY

"This is an excellent resource for guiding the selection of mental health assessment tools for use in the juvenile justice system. It is comprehensive, authoritative, and practical. The volume clearly articulates the many applications of mental health assessment in the juvenile justice system, and reviews specific measures that meet a variety of needs. This is an important contribution for mental health workers in the juvenile justice system, for researchers studying the mental health needs of juvenile offenders, and, as a graduate text, for students being trained to work in the juvenile justice system."--Paul J. Frick, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of New Orleans "This book will prove valuable to program administrators and mental health professionals alike. In addition to providing a comprehensive discussion of the challenges of, and rationale for, mental health screening and assessment in juvenile justice settings, Grisso et al. have assembled a cadre of professionals uniquely situated to describe and review the utility of key measures of emotional and behavioral functioning. Administrators charged with implementing screening and assessment programs, practitioners considering the utility of specific assessment tools that may be employed in this arena, and researchers, as well, all will find this volume extremely helpful."--Randy K. Otto, PhD, Department of Mental Health Law and Policy, Florida Mental Health Institute, University of South Florida "This essential book succeeds in significantly raising the bar for how accurately and effectively we can identify the mental health needs of youth in contact with the juvenile justice system. Grisso et al. provide a conceptual framework for screening and assessment, describe the major tools currently available for use in juvenile justice settings, and offer guidelines for using these tools to glean what practitioners need to know, when they need to know it. Highly useful and relevant, this book could not be arriving at a more critical time. It provides the practical knowledge base upon which to make better decisions and develop better mental health services for justice-involved youth in juvenile programs and in the community."--Joseph J. Cocozza, PhD, National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice, Policy Research Associates, Inc., Delmar, New York "An impressive, comprehensive, and up-to-date work. Developmental and diagnostic issues are covered along with the strengths and weaknesses of assessment tools available for use with this population. This book, which is well edited and accessible, is an essential resource for anyone working in juvenile justice settings."--Diane H. Schetky, MD, private practice in forensic psychiatry, Rockport, Maine; Department of Psychiatry, University of Vermont College of Medicine at Maine Medical CenterGrisso, Thomas is the author of 'Mental Health Screening and Assessment in Juvenile Justice', published 2005 under ISBN 9781593851323 and ISBN 1593851324.
