Summary

Providing a solid grounding in the most widely used approaches to adult personality assessment, this invaluable text presents a framework for constructing a "moving picture" of each client by integrating data from a variety of sources. Students learn to conduct assessments that take the complexities of the individual personality into account, serve as the basis for a rational treatment plan, and facilitate meaningful reporting and client feedback. An ideal text for courses in adult assessment and personality, the volume features an extended case example that brings key concepts to life.
