Integrative Assessment of Adult Personality

Synopsis

"Now in a fully revised and expanded second edition, this landmark work gives students and clinicians a solid grounding in the most widely used approaches to adult personality assessment. Unlike most other assessment texts, the volume goes beyond providing state-of-the-science coverage of specific instruments to delineate a framework for integrating data from a variety of sources. The focus is on using test results go construct a "moving picture" that takes the complexities of the individual personality into account, serves as the basis for a rational treatment plan, and facilitates meaningful reporting and client feedback. Restructured and thoroughly rewritten to reflect the latest findings and approaches in the field, the second edition features an extended case example that brings key concepts to life. Authoritative and up to date, this volume is an ideal text or advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses. It is also an essential reference and guide for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, and others conducting assessments in a range of professional settings."
