Book description

This Handbook provides a contemporary and research-informed review of the topics essential to clinical psychological assessment and diagnosis. It outlines assessment issues that cross all methods, settings, and disorders, including (but not limited to) psychometric issues, diversity factors, ethical dilemmas, validity of patient presentation, psychological assessment in treatment, and report writing. These themes run throughout the volume as leading researchers summarize the empirical findings and technological advances in their area. With each chapter written by major experts in their respective fields, the text gives interpretive and practical guidance for using psychological measures for assessment and diagnosis.


'This book contains a well-organized collection of treatises that cover the spectrum of psychological assessment, including the fundamentals of psychometry, ethical and validity issues, and methods for assessing common psychiatric and neurological conditions. Each chapter is written to facilitate easy digestion and practical implementation, serving educators, students, clinicians, and researchers alike.'

Thomas A. Hammeke - Medical College of Wisconsin

'From psychometric foundations to clinical applications, this Handbook covers both fundamental and advanced topics in psychological assessment across the domains of professional practice. With sections organized by assessment methods and tests, and by the assessment of specific diagnoses, this volume stands out as a key resource for practitioners, researchers, supervisors, and graduate students.'

Aaron L. Pincus - Pennsylvania State University
