From the Back Cover

Instructive guide to preparing informative and accurate assessment reports for a variety of individuals and settings

Assessment reports are central to the diagnostic process and are used to inform parents, clients, and clinicians, among others, about academic problems, personality functioning, neuropsychological strengths and weaknesses, behavioral problems, and the like. Essentials of Assessment Report Writing provides handy, quick-reference information, using the popular Essentials format, for preparing effective assessment reports.

This book is designed to help busy mental health professionals quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to write effective psychological assessment reports. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

This practical guide focuses on efficiently and effectively communicating referral and background information, appearance and behavioral observations, test results and interpretation, summary and diagnostic impressions, and treatment recommendations. The authors provide examples of both good and bad case report writing and highlight ethical issues and topics relevant to presenting feedback. Essentials of Assessment Report Writing is the only pocket reference illustrating how to prepare an effective assessment report.

I really like this book, and the others in this series that I have used.

It's drawback though is that it is VERY aligned to writing reports for children and could have included more examples of adult reporting.

This book provides what it promises plus gives value for money. Like other titles in the series, it suits the approach of reading the entire text and then marking specific pages for later reference.

I purchased it from Amazon.com after searching the tables of contents and several other pages. When it arrived I was pleased to find that all sections of the book contained sound professional advice, good writing, and in-depth coverage.

The authors show an appreciation of differences in reporting styles that are linked to the type and purpose of an assessment. The book clarifies the over-riding need to present information clearly and concisely within sections that enable readers to access information and understand the assessor's interpretation of a client's scores, responses and behaviours.

Report writing after administering a test is tricky. The wording can be tricky. This books helps explain what parents want to hear and how to write it. Every test is different, therefore every report is different. This book explains how to write it properly, without skipping anything significant. Great book.

I ordered this for my wife who has a new job where she has to write assessment reports, and she was taking several hours to write one the first time, and would then have to rewrite them about half the time, and now she is down to less than an hour, so I think this book helped a lot.

Helpful for beginners learning to write psychological reports. There's lots of examples and sections to help with "finding your style" especially transitional areas of the report.

Books giving instruction on writing reports are hard to find. This is a decent starter book. It has good reminder boxes and gives an overall structure for writing different types of reports. It is a reference for those trained in test assessment and report writing but desire a refresher or reference to ensure a complete report.

To be honest I still haven't been able to really implement this book as I prepare assessments, but the book itself is full of good information to help with documentation.
