This unique volume, widely adopted for text use, presents an integrative approach to the process of personality assessment. The book addresses such issues as:
What questions should a personality assessment address?
What types of information are necessary to complete an assessment?
What instruments are needed to answer the questions?
How can the data be integrated and understood once various types have been collected?
How can the integrated assessment be best utilized in treatment planning?
While maintaining the standardized administration methods necessary for using test norms and comparing results across subjects, the approach described in this text shows how to construct a "moving picture" that takes into account the complexities of individual personalities and provides insights that will be invaluable in deriving effective treatment strategies.
