Because testing has long been regarded as an important role for counselors, they traditionally have provided a variety of testing services, including personality, vocational, intellectual, and aptitude testing. A major purpose of this book is to show how these kinds of tests can be used to augment and facilitate the counseling process. Testing in Counseling Practice provides current information about various tests and assessment methods such as historical foundations and conceptual background, measurement properties, administration and interpretation, implementation, and future research directions. The book is divided into three sections: personality assessment, vocational assessment, and contemporary issues and innovations. Each chapter is written either by the person who developed and originated the test/assessment method or by the person who is regarded as the major interpreter of it. Case examples showing how various test/assessment methods can be used in counseling practice are also included.
