In the past, children with various mental health and educational needs were too often described in global terms such as maladjusted, because assessment devices were not sensitive to different syndromes and diagnostic clusters of symptoms (Achenbach & Rescorla, 2007).

This has given rise to increased and earlier recognition of previously poorly understood or undetected problems— learning disorders, depression, teen suicide, eating disorders, conduct disorders, and problems stemming from chronic health conditions and from abuse and neglect.

By the time they were 10 years old they were both familiar with domestic and community violence, and each lived with his mother and an older sibling after his parents divorced. The boys rarely saw their fathers, and when they did it usually wasn’t a pleasant experience.
