Summary "This volume addresses the assessment of the most commonly encountered disorders or conditions among adults, older adults, and couples. Evidence-based strategies and instruments for assessing mood disorders, anxiety disorders, couple distress and sexual problems, health-related problems, and many other conditions are covered in depth. With a focus throughout on assessment instruments that are feasable, psychometrically sound, and useful for typical clinical practice, a rating system has been designed to provide evaluations of a measure's norms, reliability, validity, and clinical utility. Standardized tables summarize this information in each chapter, providing essential information on the most scientifically sound tools available for a range of assessment needs."--BOOK JACKET
