This combined textbook and reference guide identifies the three major types of psychological assessment--clinical, personality, and behavioral--and provides a survey of current theory and an expert review of the most commonly used assessment instruments (tests) in each area. The book concludes with three representative case studies that demonstrate the uses of various assessment instruments in practice. The text includes reviews of the seventeen most commonly used clinical, personality, and behavioral testing instruments, how to use them, and their application to the assessment process. Chapter 3 presents a workable framework to help students assimilate the DSM-IV-TR system. Three case studies in Chapter 7 demonstrate how various instruments are used as a battery to gather diagnostic and assessment information.Fuchs, L. S., aamp; Deno, S. L. (1982). Developing goals ...
