The book begins with a basic discussion of test development and validation, followed by a description of the methods used for integrating information from disparate sources and the presentation of a model of report writing. Issues related to the selection of assessment instruments are discussed, as is the use of the clinical interview both for gathering information and for setting the stage for the rest of the assessment experience. Specific chapters focus on assessment procedures that include the clinical interview, the WAIS-R, the Rorschach, the MMPI-2, and the MCMI, and on the ways information can be applied to the task of making treatment recommendations. The final chapter is a workbook that assists the reader in learning the principles both of test interpretation and of integrative report writing. Illustrated with four case examples, it demonstrates how to complete a worksheet designed for integrative assessment. The workbook also includes the results of procedures, blank worksheets for the reader to complete, sample forms completed by the authors, and a model assessment report based on the information provided. An ideal textbook for graduate courses in personality assessment, Integrative Assessment of Adult Personality also serves as a useful guide and reference for practicing psychologists and counselors.
