From the Back Cover

Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to confidently administer, score, and interpret the PAI®

The Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI®) provides critical information for psychologists about a client’s psychopathology and constructs for effective treatment. To use this test properly, professionals need an authoritative source of advice and guidance on how to administer, score, and interpret the test. Written by the developer and foremost authority on the PAI®, Essentials of PAI® Assessment is that source.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this book is designed to help busy mental health professionals quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of major psychological assessment instruments. 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.

Essentials of PAI® Assessment is the only concise book of its kind to provide state-of-the-art interpretive and administrative guidelines to using this popular self-administered personality test.

If you use the PAI, you need to add this book to your library. Although the PAI manual is very good; just like the MMPI, the subtleties of the PAI require a closer look. With this book, you will become more adept and the instrument more valuable.

Essentials of PAI Assessment
This book is an incredibly helpful guide to clinical utility of the PAI. Some of the other books in the Essentials series are pretty low quality, but this one is written by Leslie Morey, the creator of the PAI. This is basically like the assessment manual, but much more condensed. It's a quick reference and I fully recommend it for anyone who regularly uses and interprets the PAI.

This book is a valuable resource when making interpretations of PAI results. If you score the test using software that prints out a full report, however, the information in this book is similar (sometimes word-for-word) to what is written in those automatically-generated reports. The one section that is helpful is the chapter on "two-point codes." If you use the software exclusively, I recommend getting a different book so you have two points of view.

The book is full of generally useful information. The validity and reliability information can be found in the test manual so is not really useful here. The chapters on scoring and interpretation are concise, well written and make it easier to come up with a comprehensive picture of the client. It is well worth the investment of both money and time.

I ordered this because of a paragraph written by the author concerning recommended texts. If you are wanting a quick reference without section on individual subscale interpretation, this is for you. If you are wanting greater detail, the original guide from 1996 is best to buy.

I love this series. They're very helpful for assessments. Required reading for graduate courses and I'm so glad they were because they're a great companion.
