This authoritative clinical reference and text provides a complete guide to conducting empirically based assessments to support accurate diagnoses and better clinical care. The book builds crucial skills for gathering and interpreting data for specific assessment purposes. It also presents more advanced ways to integrate information from tests, interviews, observations, and other sources, within a biopsychosocial framework that fully addresses the needs of each client. Particular attention is given to accounting for potential biases that affect every stage of the decision-making process. User-friendly features include case examples, advice on writing reports and giving feedback to clients, and a detailed sample report.

Reviews:

"By providing a model of psychological assessment that bridges research, clinical skill, and careful reasoning, this book moves assessment training forward. The mental health care system will increasingly focus on outcomes, specialization, and integration. Suhr places efficient, focused assessment practice in the context of a deep clinical sensibility to help students apply psychological science to clinical care in a manner that transcends questionable diagnostic categories or narrow theoretical orientations."--Christopher J. Hopwood, PhD, Department of Psychology, Michigan State University

"Unlike most assessment texts, this book focuses on the entire assessment process rather than just providing information about various psychological tests. This is a welcome change that will be particularly useful to students and professionals who want to think more broadly about assessment. Suhr approaches assessment like a detective. Her book provides countless insights into everything from formulating initial impressions and incorporating psychological test data to writing reports and providing feedback."--Dustin B. Wygant, PhD, Department of Psychology, Eastern Kentucky University
