Conducting Psychological Assessment A Guide for Practitioners 2nd Edition

Beginning-to-end, step-by-step guidance on how to conduct multi-method psychological assessments from a leader in the field

The Second Edition of Conducting Psychological Assessment: A Guide for Practitioners delivers an insightful overview of the overall integrative psychological assessment process. Rather than focus on individual tests, accomplished assessment psychologist, professor, and author A. Jordan Wright offers readers a comprehensive roadmap of how to navigate the multi-method psychological assessment process.

This newest edition maintains the indispensable foundational models from the first edition and adds nuance and details from the author’s last ten years of clinical and academic experience. New ways of integrating and reconciling conflicting data are discussed, as are new models of personality functioning.

All readers of this book will benefit from:

  • A primer on the overall process of psychological assessment
  • An explanation of how to integrate the data from the administration, scoring, and interpretation phases into a fully conceptualized report
  • Actual case examples and sample assessment cases that span the entire process

Perfect for people in training programs in health service psychology, including clinical, counseling, school, and forensic programs, Conducting Psychological Assessment also belongs on the bookshelves of anyone conducting assessments of human functioning.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“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.”

“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.”
