Counseling Assessment and Evaluation: Fundamentals of Applied Practice (Counseling and Professional Identity)
Designed to help students learn how to assess clients, conduct treatment planning, and evaluate client outcomes, Counseling Assessment and Evaluation addresses specific CACREP competencies. Incorporating case studies and examples, authors Joshua C. Watson and Brandé Flamez provide foundational knowledge for sound formal and informal assessments, cover ethical and legal considerations in assessment, describe basic statistical concepts, highlight the domains in which assessments are commonly used (intelligence, aptitude, achievement, personality, career, etc.), and provide strategies for integrating assessment data when working with clients.
