Summary

In his foreword to this comprehensive text, Kevin Corcoran, Portland State University, describes it as user friendly for both student and experienced practitioner. It is unique in bridging the usual gap between the qualitative approaches, in its multidimensional focus, and in its introduction of the use of standardized testing instruments. The qualitative methods discussed include ethnographic interviewing, process recording, graphic methods, and participant observation. Numerous case samples are supplied. Assessment frameworks and specific methodologies are applicable to work with children, adults, and family systems.


"Provides the student and the practitioner with the what, why, and how of clinical assessment . . . a balanced discussion of both the philosophical and conceptual issues that underlie assessment and the practical methods and measures one may use."

-- Mark White, Auburn University
