Advances in Personality Assessment Volume 4

Edited By J. N. Butcher, Charles D. Spielberger Copyright 1985

    The primary goal of this series is to disseminate information about major new research or applied developments in the field of personality assessment. Weare striving to present a broad range of topics in personality assessment that reflect the diverse viewpoints and various assessment strategies that make up the field. The series is devoted to several types of contributions: relevant reviews of research areas and theoretical articles; empirical research studies; intensive case studies; and articles describing new, well developed assessment techniques. This volume differs somewhat from the previous three volumes in the series which generally contained chapters with heterogeneous content. Several of the articles in Volume 4 focus on a single theme-international applications of personality assessment. Specifically, it contains several invited articles which detail some of the extensive international work being conducted on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory.

    1: Psychological Assessment and Clinical Practice: Problems and Prospects; 2: Concurrent Validation After 20 Years: The Implications of Personality Stability for Its Assessment; 3: The Assessment of Marital Happiness; 4: Current developments in MMPI use: An international perspective; 5: A Consolidated Version of the MMPI in Japan; 6: Cross-Cultural Considerations for the Translation and Adaptation of the Chinese MMPI in Hong Kong; 7: Adaptation of the MMPI in Greece: Translation, Standardization, and Cross-Cultural Comparison; 8: Use of the MMPI in Chile
