I find it facinating and helpful in the mental health field.
Where was this book when I had to take an assessment class during the fall 2001 Term?
At any rate, even though I have already taken an assessment course, I bought this book anyway for my own personal reference. Crazy you say? Consider this...
Counselors have to be good consumers of assessments and the information they yield. While no one in their right mind advocates the "test and tell approach," ascribing a level of omniscience reserved only for deity, still tests and measurements can yield a lot of useful data. But what to do with it all? This is where this text comes in.
It is simply good, ethical practice to be able to have a fairly good working understanding of the how,when,where, and whys of assessment.
Whether you are taking a class, or need a refresher, or you are like me and you are a nut when it comes to doing this the correct way, this book is for you, price notwithstanding.
