9780123869340: WAIS-IV, WMS-IV, and ACS: Advanced Clinical Interpretation (Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional)

This book provides users of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS-IV) with information on applying the WAIS-IV, including additional indexes and information regarding use in special populations for advanced clinical use and interpretation. The book offers sophisticated users of the WAIS-IV and Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS-IV) guidelines on how to enhance the clinical applicability of these tests.

The first section of the book provides an overview of the WAIS-IV, WMS-IV, and new Advanced Clinical Solutions for Use with the WAIS-IV/WMS-IV (ACS). In this section, examiners will learn:

  • Normal versus atypical score variability
  • Low-score prevalence in healthy adults versus clinical populations
  • Assessing whether poor performance reflects a decline in function or is the result of suboptimal effort

New social cognition measures found in the ACS are also presented. The second part focuses on applying the topics in the first section to specific clinical conditions, including recommended protocols for specific clientele (e.g. using demographically adjusted norms when evaluating individuals with brain injury). Common clinical conditions are discussed, including Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment, traumatic brain injury, and more. Each chapter provides case examples applying all three test batteries and using report examples as they are obtained from the scoring assistant. Finally, the use of the WAIS-IV/WMS-IV and the ACS in forensic settings is presented.

  • Coverage of administration and scoring of WAIS-IV, WMS-IV and ACS
  • Information contained on the use of WAIS-IV with special populations
  • Case studies in each chapter
  • Written by the creators of WAIS-IV, WMS-IV and ACS

Review:

"Some superb cases clearly illustrate advanced interpretation strategies, as well as common pitfalls for inexperienced examiners...This book truly provides an advanced look at the use and interpretation of these instruments that goes well beyond the simple cookbook-style offerings seen elsewhere. It is not geared towards beginning graduate students, but every practitioner should eventually read it to engage in competent assessment with these instruments." Rating: 5 Stars--Doody.com, March 21, 2014 "Mental health researchers and practitioners provide a detailed overview of the psychometric instruments Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale ? Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV), the Wechsler Memory Scale ? Fourth Edition (WMS-IV), Advanced Clinical Solutions (ACS), and the WMS-IV Flexible Approach. They also describe the cognitive abilities required to complete the tasks, and present normative data for new indexes."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
