Overview

Psychological testing is most valuable when it makes a meaningful difference in a person's treatment. This groundbreaking book offers a person- and treatment-centered approach to psychological testing, as opposed to the more common test-centered approach. The result is a clinically nuanced and robust approach to inference making and data synthesis.

The book's four sections parallel the flow of an examiner moving from overview to detail and back to synthesis:

  • Part I describes treatment-centered diagnosis;
  • Part II focuses on assessment of the patient's psychological capacities;
  • Part III shows how to integrate the test information into a working understanding of the patient's problems; and
  • Part IV explains how to consolidate test findings and communicate them clearly, using a detailed case example and sample report.

Readers will find much to benefit from in this evidence-based book linking test results to meaningful individualized treatment.
