Amidst the chaos of the postdivorce world, the most bitter parental battles occur over priorities regarding the children. The mental health professional called upon to serve as the custody evaluator must bring far more to this world than a recommendation for primary custodial parent. The Custody Evaluation Handbook: Research-Based Solutions and Applications presents the first truly scientific way to address these issues. The book describes numerous tests and tools for eliciting reliable information from both children and parents. With an eye to learning the actual impact a parent has on a child rather than on what a given parent may or may not be doing, the book emphasizes the importance of obtaining measurements from the involved child. Parent tests are designed to reflect the effectiveness with which a parent responds to typical child-care situations, and the degree to which a parent truly knows - and can satisfy the needs of - a particular child. Other critical measurement targets are detailed. The Custody Evaluation Handbook will be an invaluable handbook for marriage and family therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, as well as other involved mental health professionals.
