Editorial Reviews

Review

"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, November 6, 2006)

From the Back Cover

From Previous Editions:

"A commendable volume in which the author condenses information, normally in several locations, into one reading . . . an excellent text for graduate courses on psychological assessment. It . . . familiarizes the student with the entire enterprise of clinical assessment and provides enough of a how-to guide for the student to carry out an assessment practicum."
Contemporary Psychology

"For both practitioners and students of psychological assessment, the expanded and updated Handbook provides guidance to the selection, administration, evaluation, and interpretation of the most commonly used psychological tests."
Reference and Research Book News

The updated and expanded fourth edition of the highly acclaimed classic text on psychological assessment

The Handbook of Psychological Assessment, Fourth Edition presents a step-by-step guide on how to conduct a comprehensive psychological evaluation. It provides a complete review of the most commonly used assessment instruments and the most efficient methods for selecting and administering tests, evaluating data, and integrating results into a coherent, problem-solving report.

Updated reviews and interpretive guidelines are included for the most frequently used assessment techniques, including structured and unstructured interviews, Wechlser intelligence scales (WAIS-III/WISC-III), Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI-2/MMPI-A), Millon Multiaxial Clinical Inventory-III, California Psychological Inventory, Rorschach, Thematic Apperception Test, and frequently used instruments for neuropsychological screening (e.g., Bender Gestalt and Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test). Each test is reviewed according to its history and development, psychometrics, administration, and interpretation of results.

In addition, this revised and expanded Fourth Edition includes:

  • Completely updated research on all assessment techniques
  • A chapter on the Wechsler Memory Scales (WMS-III)
  • A new chapter on brief instruments for treatment planning, patient monitoring, and outcome assessment (Beck Depression Inventory-II, State Trait Anxiety Inventory, and Symptom Checklist-90-R)

Organized according to the sequence psychologists follow when conducting an assessment, the Handbook of Psychological Assessment, Fourth Edition is a practical, valuable reference for clinical psychologists, therapists, school psychologists, and counselors.

You might think you can get by without this book during your graduate program, but I wouldn't recommend it. The text is very comprehensive -- pretty much any test you will encounter in your clinical work (with adults) is given treatment here. Excellent and thoughtful guide to interpreting test results (but you will still need to buy Roger Greene's MMPI-2 book and Exner's Rorschach Primers).

Format: Hardcover
Having read/reviewed numerous 'handbooks,' this is probably the best of the breed. Groth-Marnat has done an excellent job of covering the main assessment techniques used by clinicians to psychologically evaluate patients. Clinicians will find this handbook indispensable, and, in fact, (I predict) will keep it parked on their desk for ready access. Students will find the book thorough, informative and practical. If you are serious about psychological assessment, this one is a 'must-have.' You won't be disappointed.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This text has quickly become the gold standard for both students and practitioners of psychological assessment. It is unique in that it is extremely practical and applicable to day to day practice, yet it is thoroughly grounded in research--which is succinctly cited throughout the text. And, somehow, each volume gets better. This is not a book that will collect dust on a shelf--clinicians will find sage guidance in this text.

I will be using this book very soon in my profession. I'm glad that I ordered it because now I can start my own library for references.
