Om boka

Beginning-to-end, step-by-step guidance on how to conduct multi-method psychological assessments from a leader in the field


The Second Edition of Conducting Psychological Assessment: A Guide for Practitioners delivers an insightful overview of the overall integrative psychological assessment process. Rather than focus on individual tests, accomplished assessment psychologist, professor, and author A. Jordan Wright offers readers a comprehensive roadmap of how to navigate the multi-method psychological assessment process.


This newest edition maintains the indispensable foundational models from the first edition and adds nuance and details from the author's last ten years of clinical and academic experience. New ways of integrating and reconciling conflicting data are discussed, as are new models of personality functioning.


All readers of this book will benefit from:





A primer on the overall process of psychological assessment

An explanation of how to integrate the data from the administration, scoring, and interpretation phases into a fully conceptualized report

Actual case examples and sample assessment cases that span the entire process



Perfect for people in training programs in health service psychology, including clinical, counseling, school, and forensic programs, Conducting Psychological Assessment also belongs on the bookshelves of anyone conducting assessments of human functioning.
