The Handbook of Psychological Assessment, Third Edition offers busy professionals and graduate students a complete review of today's most commonly used psychological assessment tests. This step-by-step guide condenses countless manuals and texts into one easy-to-use volume and points out the most efficient methods for selecting tests, evaluating interview data, and integrating results into a cohesive psychological report. Readers familiar with the successful previous editions will find updated systems for evaluating the classic tests: Wechsler Intelligence Scales, Bender-Gestalt, Rorschach, Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI/MMPI-2), projective drawings, and California Psychological Inventory. Each test is reconsidered for validity and overall reliability in light of current clinical thought and scientific development. Additional chapters cover new and revised tests and the increased importance of treatment planning in the age of managed care. This updated and expanded Third Edition includes:

  • Updated systems for evaluating the classic tests
  • New and revised tests, such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory for Adolescents (MMPI-A) and the new Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC III)
  • New sections on ethics and test selection
  • A new chapter on the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI)
  • Expanded coverage of neuropsychological assessment
  • Expanded coverage of treatment planning, including a new chapter on systematically integrating test results into a treatment plan Like its predecessors, the Handbook of Psychological Assessment, Third Edition is an indispensable reference for graduate students, clinical psychologists, therapists, school psychologists, and counselors.

[The book's] purpose has been splendidly realized by Groth-Marnat, who has combined current scientific and clinical understandings and clear writing with an excellent sense of organization. Bertram H. Rothschild, ARBA 92

. . . a commendable volume in which the author condenses information, normally in several locations, into one reading . . . an excellent text for graduate courses on psychological assessment. It would familiarize the student with the entire enterprise of clinical assessment and provide enough of a how-to guide for the student to carry out an assessment practicum. Contemporary Psychology

For both practitioners and students of psychological assessment, the expanded and updated Handbook provides guidance to the selection, administration, evaluation, and interpretation of the most commonly used psychological tests. Reference and Research Book News
