Best Practices in the Multidisciplinary Assessment of Emotional Disturbances: A Primer for Counselors
Rudy, Heidi L.; Levinson, Edward M.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n4 p494-504 Fall 2008
Emotional and behavioral difficulties often interfere with children's acquisition of academic, career, and social skills. Counselors assume an important role in the mandated multidisciplinary evaluation of children with emotional disturbance (ED), but the field lacks a standard battery of assessment procedures for working with children who have ED. The authors review the current issues related to students with ED, describe instruments and procedures used to assess ED, and discuss the counselor's role in the assessment process.
