Now available in paper for the first time, this volume brings together leading contributors to provide a comprehensive review of theory, research, and practice in child and adolescent personality assessment. Organized for easy reference, the book is divided into four parts. Part I summarizes basic theories, issues, and concepts, setting forth a framework for assessment as a hypothesis- generating, problem-solving process. Part II describes and evaluates a wide range of relevant approaches, tests, and techniques, marshaling the available data and reviewing administration procedures, scoring, and interpretation. In Part III, the process by which personality assessment is translated into effective intervention strategies and programs for children is examined in depth. A summary of major perspectives and recommended practices is presented in Part IV, which also considers future needs and directions for the field.

Industry Reviews

"Impressive... Should find a place in the curriculum of graduate students...A good resource book for practitioners." - Journal of Clinical Child Psychology "The wisdom of many specialists can be found in The Assessment of Child and Adolescent Personality, and readers will find a wealth of invaluable information about how tests and other assessment procedures are used in schools and clinics. The book also is an excellent source for obtaining references for further study. The volume fills a void in the field and is a welcome addition to the assessment literature. It should prove to be a valuable guide to students and practitioners in the field of clinical child psychology and school psychology." - from the Foreword by Jerome M. Sattler
