Chapter 3 presents the process involved in the social-emotional-behavioral assessment of children and adolescents and how this process can be conceptualized within a comprehensive problem-solving framework. It includes discussions about the importance of assessment in clinicians' therapeutic work with children, adolescents, and their families, the ways in which clinicians' theoretical orientations guide/define their practice, not only in terms of psychotherapeutic interventions, but also in terms of their assessment practices, the background in child and adolescent assessment, and how assessment can be comprehensively conceptualized as a problem-solving process for clinicians.
