Methods and Evaluation in Clinical and Counseling Psychology discusses the many-sided problems that psychology faces, as well as contributions psychology can make in many areas of human concern. This book reviews methods, tests, and therapeutic techniques that represent psychology. The future role of psychology as a profession is also elaborated. Other topics covered include measurement of individual differences; impressionistic-projective approaches; culture-minimized intelligence tests; and Rorschach test and emotional growth. The behavioral disorders; Kahn test of symbol arrangement; forensic psychiatry; and determining cerebral dominance are likewise deliberated. This text also considers the cognitive approaches; hominological therapy; theories of vocational guidance; and clinical psychology and law. This publication is beneficial to practicing psychologists and other professions that deal with human welfare—social workers, correctional workers, and those who are employed in the various specialties of medicine, law, ministry, and education.
