Praise for CONDUCTING PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT

"This new addition of Wright's useful text is a tour de force. No one else writes more clearly, practically, and helpfully than Wright about psychological assessment?especially about the complex process of case conceptualization. This book should be required reading in every graduate course on psychological assessment." ?Stephen E. Finn, PhD, Founder, Center for Therapeutic Assessment

"A. Jordan Wright's Conducting Psychological Assessment is a comprehensive step-by-step guide to every aspect of psychological testing and assessment. Blending clinical wisdom with rigorous empirical evidence, the author guides readers though every phase of the assessment process, from selecting appropriate measures and collecting test data through writing assessment reports and providing feedback to clients. Experienced clinicians, early career psychologists, and students will all benefit from this important book; it should be on every clinician's bookshelf." ?Robert F. Bornstein, PhD, Derner School of Psychology, Adelphi University

"Conducting Psychological Assessment (2nd ed) provides a clear, concise, practical guide to essential aspects of clinical assessment. Dr. Wright presents scholarly research, draws on extensive clinical experience, and illustrates his guidelines with rich case examples. Much of this information is typically not included in other assessment books, such as how to select tests, strategies to integrate contradictory data, and how to work with clients who disagree with assessment results. Accordingly, I recommend this to all health professionals involved with clinical assessment." ?Gary Groth-Marnat, PhD, ABPP, ABAP
