Beschrijving
Provides a scientific context for understanding psychological testing with children and adolescents with practical guidelines for using individual tests in clinical practice. The growing need among child care providers to assess behavioral/emotional problems demands that graduate students and professionals have a sound understanding of theory and research and step-by-step instructions for successful assessment and diagnosis of such problems. The most critical component in choosing a method of assessment and interpreting assessment data is an understanding of what one is trying to measure. This volume is an effective tool for understanding the practice of psychological testing.
