Overview

Now in a fully revised and expanded second edition, this landmark text gives students and clinicians a solid grounding in the most widely used approaches to adult personality assessment. Beyond providing state-of-the-science coverage of specific instruments, the volume delineates a clear framework for integrating data from a variety of sources. The focus is on using assessment results effectively to develop evidence-based treatment plans, provide appropriate client feedback, and prepare cohesive clinical reports. Thoroughly rewritten to reflect the latest findings, theories, and methods, the second edition includes an extended case example bringing key concepts to life. The recently developed Systematic Treatment Selection (STS) approach is described in depth, including information on computer-based applications. Other new chapters cover the California Psychological Inventory; working with culturally diverse clients and older adults; and special assessment settings, including forensic, psychiatric, and community mental health contexts.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This text is an excellent addition to a graduate course in personality assessment. Its unique contribution is Beutler's sophisticated thinking about dimensions of treatment selection, but he also addresses the issues involved in designing appropriate assessments and integrating the findings. Outstanding chapters are included on the major adult assessment instruments in use today." --Tony Cellucci, Ph.D., Francis Marin University, Dept of Psychology, Course: PSY631, Assessment II

"I am using this book for my graduate courses in assessment and diagnosis. The extended case examples give my students a real feel for what clinical practice is actually like. Dr. Beutler stands as the leader in the field. His book is the only text I know of that's oriented to treatment planning and that contains guidelines for integrating different sources of information and assessment tools, such as the Rorschach, MMPI-2, and interview data, into a single assessment report." --Kevin L. Moreland, Ph.D., Dept. of Psychology, Fordham University

"Drs. Beutler and Berren have collated a valuable set of chapters, written by recognized experts in their respective areas, to illustrate the integration of psychological assessment procedures. Their emphases on assessment as a consultative, rather than a technical function, is an important distinction that all too often is overlooked in this field. Their specific suggestions on how to organize and integrate information from a variety of sources is important for all clinicians, and particularly for graduate students who are learning these skills. Finally, their emphasis on the necessity for a consistent conceptual scheme for the integration of psychological assessment procedures is very valuable." --Roger L. Greene, Ph.D., Professor, Chair and Director of Clinical Training, Pacific Graduate School of Psychology

"It is a truism among those concerned with the assessment of persons that one needs to gather data from disparate sources and then integrate that information in order to arrive at an accurate description of the target. It is not commonplace, however, that one has any specific guidelines on how to bring this about. The collection of papers edited by Beutler and Berren provides such a map for those involved with clinical assessment. Direction is provided on the types of data needed, the manner in which these might be brought together, and the ways in which the final formulations can be used to design treatment plans for individual cases. There is even a model for presenting the integrated picture in a clinical report. Anyone involved with clinical evaluations will find the papers and the overall framework for integration useful. Those teaching graduate assessment courses in clinical and counseling programs will find them especially valuable." --John S. Gillis, Ph.D., Oregon State University

"In providing their incisive coverage of the key issues associated with personality assessment, the authors deal with not only the basic psychometric underpinnings of assessment procedures, but also the core clinical and conceptual issues that are at the very heart of any attempt at clinical assessment. Richly illustrated with numerous case examples, this volume depicts how the practicing clinician can select an assessment battery and integrate the findings into a comprehensive formulation having diagnostic and therapeutic implications." --Marvin R. Goldfried, Ph.D., SUNY at Stony Brook

"Provides excellent coverage of an integrative approach to assessment. This book could be one of the major texts for personality assessment." --Barry Ritzler, Ph.D., Long Island University

Peter B. Zeldow
This book provides extensive discussions of the nature of psychological tests, how to select an assessment battery, how to interpret test results, how to organize the results into a report, and how to develop treatment recommendations. There are also chapters devoted to specific psychological tests such as the WAIS-R, the MMPI-2, and the Rorschach. The purpose is to teach an empirically based method of organizing interview and psychological test data to construct a clinically useful and complete portrait of an individual's functioning that is accurate and valuable for treatment purposes. This is a worthy purpose and one that the editors have unequivocally fulfilled. The book is written primarily for graduate students and trainees in clinical psychology, but it will be of interest to all clinical psychologists engaged in the practice or teaching of psychological assessment. The editors and authors include some of the leading authorities in the area of psychological testing. The book has many helpful tables and figures, including test profiles, and numerous case studies. The references are current and comprehensive. The book is attractive and neatly organized. The final chapter is an 80-page workbook that presents four cases and sample reports. It has been some time since a book devoted to the interpretation of multiple psychological tests has appeared, and this book is a welcome addition. It reflects the impressive scientific foundation of personality assessment, and it offers students a sophisticated primer in test interpretation and report writing that will be widely adopted for graduate level courses.
