Praise for the Fourth Edition
"In sum, this book continues to set the standard in the fieldand is strongly recommended as a basic reference guide for thoseclinicians who routinely do psychological testing."(Psychotherapy Review, 11/6/2006)
"In the 5th edition of his very helpful text, Handbook ofPsychological Assessment
, Groth-Marnat once again assemblesinformation about the history, development, and latest research onthe major psychological assessment instruments in current use. Healso gives wise and clear advice about the general process ofclinical assessment, and about how to integrate information into auseful psychological report. I was particularly fascinated with thesample reports Groth-Marnat assembled from different settings,which give a sense of the breadth of assessment practicetoday.
This handbook will be extremely useful to students beginning theircareers in psychological assessment, and to experienced assessorswho want a handy resource when needed."
–Dr. Stephen Finn
"This Handbook is absolutely at the top of the “toread” list, or should be, for serious scholars ofpsychological measurement methods. Already known for itsattention to detail and it’s depth, this edition of theHandbook has been given greater breadth through the addition ofseveral great features: 1) The literature has been criticallyupdated, 2) sections for working with special populations have beenadded, and 3) its content is tuned to important changes in thefield. In all this, it has retained Groth-Marnat’sgreat clarity and devotion to being accurate and useful."
