Features: Psychological Testing That Matters Creating a Road Map for Effective Treatment
By (author): Anthony D. Bram, Mary Jo Peebles
Psychological testing is most valuable when it makes a meaningful difference in a person s treatment. This groundbreaking book offers a person- and treatment-centered approach to psychological testing, as opposed to the more common test-centered approach. The result is a clinically nuanced and robust approach to inference making and data synthesis.
The book s four sections parallel the flow of an examiner moving from overview to detail and back to synthesis: Part I describes treatment-centered diagnosis; Part II focuses on assessment of the patient s psychological capacities; Part III shows how to integrate the test information into a working understanding of the patient s problems; and Part IV explains how to consolidate test findings and communicate them clearly, using a detailed case example and sample report. Readers will find much to benefit from in this evidence-based book linking test results to meaningful individualized treatment.
