Advances in Personality Assessment - Vol. 10

By James N. Butcher; Charles D. Spielberger | Go to book overview

Preface

We began this Advances series in the early 1980s to facilitate the rapid dissemination of important new developments in theory and research on all aspects of personality assessment. We were impressed at that time with the extensive research on test development and validation that was going on, and were concerned with the limited publication resources devoted to personality assessment. With this Advances series, we hoped to provide a publication opportunity and resource for reports of personality assessment research and/or clinical practice that might not conveniently fit in journal format because of length, focus, or content.

We believe that the first nine volumes of Advances in Personality Assessment have accomplished our goal exceptionally well by highlighting new empirical and theoretical developments, providing descriptions of new scale development, and in publishing timely reviews of important research. Volume 10 continues in the same tradition as the previous volumes, with chapters devoted to scale construction, theoretical interpretation, and empirical analysis. The first chapter, by Ruth Schiller, Auke Tellegen, and Jean Evens, describes both idiographic and nomothetic studies of personality. In chapter 2, James Butcher and Kyunghee Han provide a detailed description of a new MMPI-2 scale they developed for assessing "Superlative Self-presentation," a potentially invalidating test response condition.

In chapter 3, Wolfgang Linden, Frances Wen, and Delroy Paulhus review empirical approaches to measuring alexithymia. Chapter 4, by Moshe Almagor and Yossef Ben-Porath, provides a summary of recent empirical research on affectivity in Israel. An empirical evaluation of a pioneering substance abuse treatment program is reported by Samuel Karson and Robert Gesumaria in chapter 5. Chapter 6, by Nathan Weed, James Butcher, and Yossef Ben-Porath
