About the Book

"In the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, we have attempted to provide the reader with books that will deliver key practical information in the most efficient and accessible style. The series features instruments in a variety of domains, such as cognition, personality, education, and neuropsychology. For the experienced clinician, books in the series offer a concise yet thorough way to master use of the continuously evolving supply of new and revised instruments as well as a convenient method for keeping up-to-date on the tried-and-true measures. The novice will find here a prioritized assembly of all the information and techniques that must be at one's fingertips to begin the complicated process of individual psychological diagnosis. Whenever feasible, visual shortcuts to highlight key points are used alongside systematic, step-by-step guidelines. Chapters are focused and succinct. Topics are targeted for an easy understanding of the essentials of administration, scoring, interpretation, and clinical application. Theory and research are continually woven into the fabric of each book, always to enhance clinical inference, never to sidetrack or overwhelm. We have long been advocates of "intelligent" testing-the notion that a profile of test scores is meaningless unless it is brought to life by the clinical observations and astute detective work of knowledgeable examiners. Test profiles must be used to make a difference in the child's or adult's life, or why bother to test? We want this series to help our readers become the best intelligent testers they can be."--

Book Synopsis

Vor etwa 10 Jahren erschien die Originalausgabe von Conducting Psychological Assessment. Seitdem wird dieses Referenzwerk, insbesondere in der Lehre, eingesetzt, um Psychologen in der Erstellung psychologischer Gutachten zu schulen, vor allem im Hinblick auf die Integration von Daten und das Abfassen von Berichten. Das in der Originalausgabe vorgestellte Hypothesentestmodell ist heute das Standardmodell für eine ethische und in jeder Hinsicht umfassende Begutachtung. Die 2. Auflage greift auf grundlegende Modelle der ersten Auflage zurück, ergänzt um Nuancen und Details, die in Workshops über die letzten zehn Jahre erarbeitet wurden. Der Autor hat anerkannte Modelle zum Abgleich widersprüchlicher Daten aus unterschiedlichen Quellen entwickelt, die in das Kapitel zur Datenintegration einfließen können. Auch nutzt der Autor verschiedene andere Modelle zur Persönlichkeitsfunktion als Vorlage für die Erarbeitung von Daten, darunter das interpersonelle Circumplex-Modell. Diese Ansätze kommen in diesem Buch durchgängig zur Anwendung.
