Assessing Youth introduces program and clinical staff to the goals and principles, techniques and instruments, and accomplishments and pitfalls of assessing young people who have sexually abused. While integrating the most current research, David Prescott differentiates clearly between assessments of adults and those of adolescents. This primer provides an overview of many of the instruments currently in use for assessing youth and addresses areas of risk that can serve as treatment goals. It further provides considerations for the developmental needs of youth, brief suggestions for interviewing, and links to new resources. Assessing Youth is the most user-friendly primer on adolescent assessment available.
