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.
