The landmark reference for psychological assessment, updated with the latest research and guidelines

The Handbook of Psychological Assessment provides students and clinicians with practical instruction on selecting, administering, interpreting, and using the results of assessment procedures. This new sixth edition features a variety of updates, including the latest research, DSM-5 and ICD-10 guidelines, and the new WISC-V, WAIS-IV, MMPI-2 RF, and R-PAS. A new chapter on the NEO-PI 3 aids in adult and adolescent assessment based on the Five-Factor Model of personality, and a new chapter on the Personality Assessment Inventory provides the empirical support behind its increasing popularity. All assessments covered were selected on the basis of clinical relevance and widespread use, and the discussion has been newly enhanced to emphasize diversity. Each chapter guides you through data evaluation and interpretation, and a discussion devoted to treatment planning helps you integrate assessment results into your reports. Detailed, practical, and well-referenced, this book is among the clinician's most trusted resources.

Organized according to the typical assessment sequence, this practical, skills-based guide shows you the most efficient methods for every step in the assessment process.

• Learn how each assessment test is evaluated and analyzed
• Make sense of raw data using various interpretive methodologies
• Get up to speed on the latest assessment guidelines and diagnostic criteria
• Integrate test scores into a case focused, problem solving psychological report

The assessment process is a critical part of treatment planning and the foundation upon which future progress is built. This book helps you make it more user-friendly and consumer oriented, and provides valuable insight on client collaboration and treatment planning. For busy clinicians seeking quick answers and students needing clear guidance, the Handbook of Psychological Assessment is the field's most thorough and trusted reference.
