Book Description

30 Mar 2014 1433816741 978-1433816741 1
Psychological testing is most valuable when it makes a meaningful difference in a person's treatment. This groundbreaking book offers a person- and treatment-centred approach to psychological testing, as opposed to the more common test-centred approach. The result is a clinically nuanced and robust approach to inference making and data synthesis.

The book's four sections parallel the flow of an examiner moving from overview to detail and back to synthesis:

  • Part I describes treatment-centred diagnosis
  • Part II focuses on assessment of the patient's psychological capacities
  • Part III shows how to integrate the test information into a working understanding of the patient's problems
  • Part IV explains how to consolidate test findings and communicate them clearly, using a detailed case example and sample report

  • Readers will find much to benefit from in this evidence-based book linking test results to meaningful individualised treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Enduring Contribution 27 Mar 2014
By Fred Shectman - Published on Amazon.com
Since its inception in 1925, The Menninger Clinic in Topeka had been a place of hope for troubled and troubling people. Individuals, couples and families with complex and multifaceted issues came after they had exhausted local resources. The psychological work done there exemplified Karl Menninger's wisdom that when a professional says a patient is hopeless, it only means that the helper doesn't know what to do.

The backbone and core of understanding and formulating an individualized treatment plan was diagnostic understanding. This went far beyond simple labeling based on psychiatric nomenclature. A central basis for this was the diagnostic testing, widely known as perhaps the very best available.

Drs. Bram and Peebles have captured the essence of this "Menninger Way" of thinking. In so doing they have contributed a lasting illustration of and guide to a way of illuminating the arc of darkness which shrouds our fellow human beings.
