Praise for the Fourth Edition
"In sum, this book continues to set the standard in the field and is strongly recommended as a basic reference guide for those clinicians who routinely do psychological testing." (Psychotherapy Review, 11/6/2006)
"In the 5th edition of his very helpful text, Handbook of Psychological Assessment
, Groth-Marnat once again assembles information about the history, development, and latest research on the major psychological assessment instruments in current use. He also gives wise and clear advice about the general process of clinical assessment, and about how to integrate information into a useful psychological report. I was particularly fascinated with the sample reports Groth-Marnat assembled from different settings, which give a sense of the breadth of assessment practice today.
This handbook will be extremely useful to students beginning their careers in psychological assessment, and to experienced assessors who want a handy resource when needed."
–Dr. Stephen Finn
"This Handbook is absolutely at the top of the “to read” list, or should be, for serious scholars of psychological measurement methods. Already known for its attention to detail and it’s depth, this edition of the Handbook has been given greater breadth through the addition of several great features: 1) The literature has been critically updated, 2) sections for working with special populations have been added, and 3) its content is tuned to important changes in the field. In all this, it has retained Groth-Marnat’s great clarity and devotion to being accurate and useful."
