Edited By James N. Butcher, Charles D. Spielberger Copyright 1990

    First published in 1990. The field of personality assessment continues to grow and expand at a rapid rate. The present volume is a continuation of the author's effort to bring together significant original papers representing diverse theoretical perspectives, critical methodological issues, and a variety of assessment techniques. Diversity of assessment approaches are also considered in the present volume. These vary from traditional assessment approaches, such as the Rorschach and the MMPI, to newer instruments such as Temperament Inventory. This will be of interest to mental health professionals, as it provides new insights and information about important directions in which the field of personality assessment is going.
