The fourth edition of this essential resource has dozens of new scales as well as updated information for existing instruments, expanding and cementing its utility for members of all the helping professions, including psychology, social work, psychiatry, counseling, nursing, and medicine. Each instrument is reproduced in its entirety and critiqued by the editors, who provide guidance on how to select and score them. This volume focuses on scales for use with adults; its companion provides a range for couples, families, and children. Alone or as a set, these classic compendiums are powerful tools that clinicians and researchers alike will find an invaluable addition to - or update of - their libraries.

Giving clinicians the scales they need to measure their clients' problems and monitor their outcomes, these all-in-one sourcebooks bring effective, accountable practice within reach for today's busy professionals.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"...[Corcoran and Fischer] continue with their extraordinarily successful endeavor which enables practitioners to choose the most appropriate measurement instrument for problems they encounter in a matter of minutes. This book should be on the shelf of every practitioner working in a human service setting. Through the use of this book, practitioners will not only continue to meet the ever increasing demands for accountability, but will also satisfy their own desires for objective quantifiable indications of progress in a manner that can be accomplished in no more than several minutes. As I predicted twenty years ago, 'the value of this book will increase,' and that continues to be the case."--From the new Foreword by David H. Barlow, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor of Psychology & Psychiatry and Director of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University

"The fourth edition of Measures for Clinical Practice and Research will, like the earlier ones, be the 'go-to' book on the shelf of practitioners and researchers. Fischer and Corcoran provide an invaluable resource to those needing access to reliable and valid tools when working with clients or developing research studies. Laid out in an understandable format with cross-indexed items, users will find these volumes easy to navigate. A great addition to your personal library. You will not lend this book without obtaining significant collateral from the borrower!"-- David Miller, Ph.D., M.S.W., M.P.H., Associate Professor, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University

"For many years, the earlier edition of Fischer and Corcoran's Measures for Clinical Practice and Research occupied a treasured place on my office bookshelf. They were the most frequently borrowed books I possessed and several occasions my copies failed to be returned, a rough indicator of their interest and value! The fourth edition is newly expanded, with a clinically useful overview of the principles measurement applied to practice issues, and a terrific new cross-index, linking together various measures by problem area, not only by clientele (individual, couple, family or children). I love this two volume set of pencil and paper measures useful in assessing clients and in evaluating treatment outcomes. It is one of the handiest tools I have in teaching practice, assessment, and evaluation research. Every agency must keep a copy on its bookshelf! Every practitioner will find it useful!"-- Bruce A. Thyer, Ph.D., Professor of Social Work, Florida State University

"All you need for counseling is a box of tissues, a clock, and this collection of instruments. After a few years in practice you can do without the clock, but the Measures for Clinical Practice and Research will still be useful. Here are convenient tools for assessment and documentation that can address concerns about outcomes and accountability. Keep this book (and the tissues) close to hand."-- Bentson McFarland, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University

"Once again, Joel Fischer and Kevin Corcoran have compiled an extremely helpful resource not only for practitioners but for researchers as well. In cogent chapters written in an accessible style, readers are provided with just the information they need to make intelligent and empirically-grounded choices about measurement instruments. Earlier editions of Measures for Clinical Practice sit in a prominent place on my office bookshelf, and I find myself consulting them often. Drs. Fischer and Corcoran have provided an important service for our field."-- Peter Salovey, PhD, Chris Argyris Professor of Psychology, Dean of Yale College, Yale University
