This is a revised version of a comprehensive clinical personality assessment volume that was well received by professionals in clinical psychology. Contributors from a diverse range of psychological disciplines address a number of central issues in personality assessment in clinical and forensic settings. The authors were invited to select a key problem area in the field and to emphasize practical issues in their chapters. The result is a work of outstanding variety and depth of coverage with an immediately useful, hands-on focus. The second edition has been updated to include several more timely topics including: psycho physiolocgical methods in assessing emotions, assessment client's marital satisfaction, behaviorial genetic considerations in personality assessment, and assessment of suicide risk. Other topics include ethical considerations in clinical personality assessment, assessment of racial and ethnic minorities, sources of personality information, and problems in personality assessment. A practical, context-based approach is maintained throughout, and a useful appendix providing an index of psychological assessment procedures concludes the book. Clinical Personality Assessment, 2/e, is considered a defintitve text in the field of assessment, appealing to both students and practicing clinical psychologists.
