Test-based psychological assessment has been significantly affected by the health care revolution in the United States during the past two decades. Despite new limitations on psychological services across the board and psychological testing in particular, it continues to offer a rapid and efficient method of identifying problems, planning and monitoring a course of treatment, and assessing the outcomes of interventions.

This thoroughly revised and greatly expanded third edition of a classic reference, now three volumes, constitutes an invaluable resource for practitioners who in a managed care era need to focus their testing not on the general goals of personality assessment, symptom identification, and diagnosis so often presented to them as students and trainees, but on specific questions: What course of treatment should this person receive? How is it going? Was it effective?

New chapters describe new tests and models and new concerns such as ethical aspects of outcomes assessment. Volume I reviews general issues and recommendations concerning the use of psychological testing for screening for psychological disturbances, planning and monitoring appropriate interventions, and the assessing outcomes, and offers specific guidelines for selecting instruments. It also considers more specific issues such as the analysis of group and individual patient data, the selection and implementation of outcomes instrumentation, and the ethics of gathering and using outcomes data. Volume II discusses psychological measures developed for use with younger children and adolescents that can be used for the purposes outlined in Volume I; Volume III, those developed for use with adults.

Drawing on the knowledge and experience of a diverse group of leading experts—test developers, researchers, clinicians and others, the third edition of The Use of Psychological Testing for Treatment Planning and Outcomes Assessment provides vital assistance to all clinicians, and to their trainees and graduate students.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This volume 3 of a 3-volume set is a needed update and serves as a comprehensive resource for the most popular adult assessments and scales and of course, as a stand-alone teaching tool.
Purpose: Like all of the volumes, the purpose of the revised edition is to provide the necessary updates for an ever-changing practice environment. Volume 3 specifically addresses the use of specific psychological instruments for the treatment planning and outcome assessment of adults. The objective is to provide clinicians with knowledge of new instruments and expand upon previous knowledge. The book exceeds expectations and meets the need of today's mental health professional.
Audience: The book is intended for clinicians and graduate students in psychology and in medicine. These volumes are clearly excellent teaching tools and a comprehensive resource. Graduate psychology students and residents in general psychiatry will appreciate the wealth of knowledge contained in this volume.
Features: Volume 3 focuses in on the most notable instruments such as the SCL-90, the Brief Symptom Inventory, The Brief Symptom Inventory (BPRS), the Beck, the Hamilton Depression and Anxiety Scales, the MMPI-2, various sexual inventories, as well as geriatric scales. The discussions of tests and models are current and focus on the use, predictability, and implementation of these tests in adults. The index is extremely helpful and will serve well as a day-to-day resource.
Assessment: Volume 3 in this series is the capstone of a powerful 3-volume set of information. I do not know of a finer set of knowledge available that is both practical and easy-to-read. Strongly recommended.
