Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:"This discussion of the various elements involved in psychological assessments emphasizes the analysis of personality, especially anxiety. . Psychology students and professional psychologists are the intended audience. . This book is helpful for graduate psychology students and young professionals learning how to write good psychological reports, especially the personality section which always is the most difficult to formulate. It is appealing to those who embrace a psychodynamic or psychoanalytic theoretical persuasion." (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody's Reviews Service, August, 2008)
