Overview

Offers a central resource for the construction and organization of psychological reports Helps both students and professionals write reports based on the particular needs and conflicts of the individual patient Provides a model for constructing a psychodiagnostic report that integrates and synthesizes personality data derived from the standard projective battery Covers emerging areas in borderline and narcissistic pathologies, psychological testing of preschool children, and bilingual populations Summarizes the current diagnostic nomenclature Discusses the most current clinical issues, the unique problems of minority testing, evaluating populations on which standard psychological tests have not been standardized, and special consideration for bilingual patients Since the debut of the original edition, the Handbook of Psychodiagnostic Testing has been an invaluable aid to students and professionals performing psychological assessments. The new Fourth Edition continues in that tradition, taking the reader from client referral to finished report, demonstrating how to synthesize details of personality and pathology into a document that is focused, coherent, and clinically meaningful. As with the previous editions, authors Kellerman and Burry offer a systematic framework for choosing the most relevant material from seemingly overwhelming amounts of test data. Separate chapters offer clear rationales for each component of the report (e.g., cognitive functioning, interpersonal behavior, control mechanisms), and how they relate to one another. Helpful summaries follow each chapter, and tables and charts provide salient facts and findings at a glance. Features of the updated Fourth Edition: A clear blueprint for writing effective, clinically integrative psychological reports. Emerging areas of interest in testing, including ethnic and language issues. Guidelines for assessing strengths and potential as well as pathology. Revi
