Abstract and Keywords
This chapter introduces the revised volume and notes that the book highlights the most recent empirical data and conceptual developments in the field. Each chapter is introduced within four major sections of the volume including (1) Contextual Factors in Early Assessment; (2) Temperament and Regulation in Assessment of Young Children; (3) Early Problems and Disorders; and (4) Translation and Varied Applied Settings for Assessment. It notes that developmental, social, and cultural contexts in relation to the assessment of early problems and disorders are included in the volume in hopes that the field will continue to generate and empirically test multilevel, systemic models that can be applied to the assessment and understanding of mental disorders in infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families.
Keywords: Early Mental Health Assessment, Conceptual Themes in Early Assessment, Challenges to the Field of Mental Health Assessment, Empirically Based Assessment, Contextual Factors in Early Assessment
