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

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.

From the Publisher
"Beutler and Groth-Marnat present personality assessment just the way it should be taught, learned, and practiced—as an integration of diverse procedures into a multifaceted assessment battery, and as an integration of interview and test findings into cohesive and individualized reports that provide useful answers to referral questions, particularly with respect to treatment planning. Contributors provide an excellent overview of the conceptual and empirical foundations of integrative personality assessment, together with detailed guidelines for putting it into practice. What they have to say will advance the field of personality and be valued by psychologists at all levels of experience, from beginning students to senior professionals."—Irving B. Weiner, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida

"A key issue among mental health professionals today is the struggle to match rapid and efficient clinical assessment with targeted treatment intervention. Beutler, Groth-Marnat, and colleagues, in this volume, have once again made an essential contribution to guiding clinicians in this integrative task."—John F. Clarkin, PhD., Department of Psychiatry, Weill College of Medicine, Cornell University

"This excellent second edition integrates the complexities of valid psychological assessment with the needs and expectations of those who will use and pay for the reports. Each chapter is rich in research material and yet shows refreshing awareness of the realities of the marketplace. Relevant to all clinicians, the book emphasizes issues and variables that underlie a range of treatment modalities. Numerous case studies demonstrate how science-based data can be synthesized into an effective report and used to guide different types of interventions. Graduate students who master this information will have a distinct advantage in professional practice. Seasoned clinicians will discover that the text not only expands their knowledge, but also reflects the kind of assessment savvy that can only be acquired through extensive clinical experience."—Dean Given, PhD, past president, California Psychological Association

"This text provides a broad and practical framework for personality assessment, excellent guidelines for the practice of personality assessment across a range of settings and referral questions, and a wealth of information on aspects of the most commonly used measures and on the conduct of clinical interviews. Graduate students find it very accessible. I especially like the way the chapters tie together the scientific foundations and the clinical application of assessment methods."—John F. Curry, PhD, Professor and Director of Clinical Training, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Duke University
