Psychological Assessment and Report Writing

Psychological Assessment and Report Writing

Outlining a step-by-step assessment model, Psychological Assessment and Report Writing covers five key topics central to psychological assessment: understanding the context of a referral, determining what data is needed to answer referral questions, gathering the data, integrating the data, and communicating the findings. Authors Karen Goldfinger and Andrew M. Pomerantz review each component, providing how-to instructions and alerting readers to a myriad of issues they must consider in conducting assessments in clinical, forensic, or educational environments.

Filled with varied case examples that promote interest and meet instructional requirements, the book uses sidebars and questionand- answer sections to encourage readers to consider their own case material and use critical thinking skills as they review each section of the model.

    Very well presented and a wonderful tool to use going forward. The Assesment section is worth the price many times over.
