From the Back Cover:

A proven classic in the field and the leading text in assessment for counselors, the newest edition of Assessment Procedures for Counselors and Helping Professionals has been completely updated and expanded to offer more thorough coverage of assessment methods.  Among the new and expanded material is coverage of psychometric and statistical concepts; new and revised tests, inventories, and scales; relevant ethical and legal issues; contemporary measurement theories; and important multicultural issues.

 

New to this edition:

  • Chapter 1, Introduction to Assessment, provides more coverage of the purpose for and process of assessment.
  • Chapter 2, Methods and Sources of Assessment Information–a new chapter–includes extensive information about interviews, tests, and observation, as well as information about the importance of using collateral sources in assessment.
  • The text provides more than 25 sample assessments, including WISC-IV sample tests results, a Stanford 10 sample report, and an MMPI-2 Profile.

 

Bound in each new copy of the book, the Exercises in Assessment CD gives readers the opportunity to apply chapter content to real counseling situations.  Exercises cover topics such as interpreting test scores, instrument evaluation, and assessment, using specific inventories such as the WISC-IV and MMPI-2.
