About this product
- DescriptionPsychological Assessment and Report Writing outlines a step-by-step model of assessment, created for instructing students in psychological assessment and comprised of five components: understanding the context of a referral; determining what data is needed to answer referral questions; gathering the data; integrating the data; and communicating findings. The authors review each of these components at length, providing 'how-to' instructions each step of the way and alerting readers to a myriad of issues they must consider in conducting assessments in clinical, forensic or educational environments. Case examples are varied to promote interest and meet instructional requirements, and readers are encouraged through sidebars and question-and-answer sections to consider their own case material and use critical thinking skills as they review each section of the model.
