1. Auflage, 2017

Psychometrics and Psychological Assessment: Principles and Applications throws new light onto the foundations of psychological science: the assessment of concepts and the validation of theoretical speculations. Specifically, it places special emphasis on illustrating contemporary theoretical perspectives and their evidence-based validity and less in their historical background. The bridge between assessment and psychometrics can be detected throughout the chapters. It highlights topics that underlie developments in the fields of developmental, clinical or neuropsychological domains, such as the role of cognitive abilities and adaptive behavior in psychopathology; the link between temperament and mental disorders; the discords between biological, neuropsychological and psychodynamic perspectives in formulating psychiatric taxonomies; the continuous efforts in the study and assessment of aggression. Finally, the book introduces a plethora of measures, along with their psychometric properties, recent meta-analytic studies and advances in their cross-cultural applications.
