Designed to help students learn how to assess clients, conduct treatment planning, and evaluate client outcomes, this practical book addresses specific CACREP competencies. Incorporating case studies and examples, authors Joshua C. Watson and Brandé Flamez provide foundational knowledge for sound formal and informal assessments, cover ethical and legal considerations in assessment, describe basic statistical concepts, highlight the domains in which assessments are commonly used (intelligence, aptitude, achievement, personality, career, etc.), and provide strategies for integrating assessment data when working with clients.


“Watson and Flamez have captured the essence of the assessment process in their new book. Through rich case illustrations and the authors’ deep knowledge of the subject, readers are provided the most current trends and reflections on the assessment process.”
Bill McHenry, Texas A&M University–Texarkana

“The text is very straightforward and easy to read. It encourages students to apply what they are learning through case illustrations and guided practice exercises.”
Wendy Killam, Stephen F. Austin State University

“Watson and Flamez provide the reader with an engaging discussion of the fundamentals of counseling assessment and evaluation.”
Mark W. Dewalt, Winthrop University

“The case illustrations and the practice exercises are exceptional and go a long way toward making the material accessible. Case examples in the body of the text are also well done.”
Patricia Andersen, Midwestern State University
