Reviews

Key strengths clearly include the iterative process that has allowed this ebook Assessment Procedures for Counselors and Helping Professionals 8th edition to become one of the foremost educational assets of facilitating assessment in counseling. The exercises help elevate this into a league of its own. The expert authors have a keen ability to outline a very dense and complex material in a very teachable; readable; and meaningful way.” — Donald Deering; University of Phoenix and Oakland University

This textbook gives a good overview of the issues involved in test development and the types of settings in which tests are used. While it’s geared toward counselors; I have felt that there is good applicability for graduate students in Higher Ed Admin and Ed Psych. I also liked the supplemental instructional materials that come with the textbook. These materials (not included in this sale) helped provide a concrete path to give the college students the context they desired. I also liked the case studies that are provided. The examples were very useful and I integrated them frequently into my class.” — Diane Kelly-Riley; Washington State University

This ebook is very impressive. Well-articulated and clearly written; the authors thoroughly cover the breadth and depth of mental health assessment. They begin every chapter by informing the readers what they should learn; which is a powerful yet subtle way to set the stage for students. Major themes are covered and many sections are concluded with cogent case examples that nicely illuminate the nuances of mental health assessment. The aggregate of this well-written ebook provides a wealth of useful information to the clinical educator; beginning student; or seasoned counselor. This ebook more than stands up to other textbooks. I seriously believe it’s the perfect writing style for master’s level students.” — Anthony Tasso; Farleigh Dickerson University
