Introduction to Psychological Assessment in the South African Context

Fifth Edition

Edited by C Foxcroft and G Roodt

Introduction to Psychological Assessment in the South African Context 5e is an introductory text on measuring and assessing human behaviour within a complex multicultural environment. It offers a practical guide to the development of culturally appropriate measures and the application of assessment measures, as well as the interpretation and reporting of results. The book provides advice with regard to assessing young children and disabled individuals and also discusses the various contexts in which psychological measures are used, including education, counselling, the psycho-legal domain, and research.

The book features critical-thinking exercises that present students with typical assessment scenarios to develop their reasoning skills. Real-life South African examples and case studies illustrate the theory, and allow students to apply psychological assessment principles in practice.
