Responsible test use : case studies for assessing human behavior by Lorraine D Eyde( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychological and educational tests are a fundamental tool of many professionals. This is certainly true for professionals in the organizations sponsoring this casebook. Yet a persistent and troublesome problem in educational and psychological measurement has been the misuse of test data. This is generally not due to any intentional misinterpretation. Individuals in the organizations sponsoring this casebook are professionals who wish to use data wisely to help their constituents and other test users. Unfortunately, they frequently are unable to do so because of inadequate training in testing. Responsible Test Use: Case Studies for Assessing Human Behavior is an important publication because, if used widely, it should assist greatly in training professionals to use tests widely

Tough kids, cool counseling : user friendly approaches with challenging youth by John Sommers-Flanagan( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All too frequently, young people resist counseling efforts. Some ways to foster a positive therapeutic relationship with young, resistant clients are described in this book. The text promotes a relationship-oriented approach, exploring ways in which counselors can capture the interest, attention, and motivation of these clients. The volume is divided into three parts. Part 1, "User-Friendly Foundations," presents strategies to understand and emotionally connect with young clients. Counseling with young people is seen as analogous to cross-cultural counseling and so physical, social, and psychological aspects of childhood are considered. Part 2, "User-Friendly Strategies," offers a number of techniques that can be used in a variety of counseling situations. Tips are given on how to quickly modify client emotional states, and methods are offered in which user-friendly treatment techniques can be used to change maladaptive cognitions, behaviors, and interpersonal relationships. Strategies such as indirect and directive storytelling and approaches to parent education and training are also described. Part 3, "Special Topics in Treating Young Clients," examines such issues as suicide assessment and management, offers tips on when to refer clients for medication evaluations, and explores issues related to therapy termination. Contains an index and approximately 300 references. (Rjm)
