This new second edition brings the same refreshing matter-of-fact guidance that made the first edition so popular with both students and professionals. Although the suggested format for psychological evaluations remains essentially the same, the authors have updated and expanded several sections within that format to enhance the quality of the evaluation report. A new section, Notification of Purpose and Limits of Confidentiality, has been added and new material on background information and the use of collateral information has been included. New examples have been added to supplement and clarify the text and a new example of a full report is presented. The Recommendations section has also been modified to incorporate specific strengths and problem areas. This book offers a wealth of descriptive information, organizing questions, guidelines, and other strategic information to make your written report as clear, comprehensive, and error free as possible.
"This is a terrific book that sets forth a practical approach and a logical structure to psychological report writing, while allowing for flexibility and individualization. Students, interns, and seasoned clinicians will find it helpful in bringing balance and focus to their assessment work. After reviewing this book, and sharing it with colleagues, we've decided to use it within our Psychology Internship Training Program, as well as make it a reference for our senior staff."

"Writing Psychological Reports is a highly readable manual on how to write a general psychological report, which the authors aptly describe as the psychological equivalent of an MRI. This volume is an invaluable resource for both beginners and experienced clinicians alike."
