Outlining a step-by-step assessment model, Psychological Assessment and Report Writing, Second Edition 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 facet of psychological assessment and report writing-providing how-to instructions and alerting readers to a myriad of issues they must consider when conducting assessments in clinical, forensic, or educational environments. Filled with varied case examples that promote interest and meet instructional requirements, including one detailed case study that recurs throughout multiple chapters, the book uses sidebars and question and answer sections to encourage readers to consider their own case material and use critical thinking skills as they review each section of the model.
