“The area of psychological assessment in primary care settings is certainly a hot topic, both within the assessment field, but also more generally within clinical psychology training and practice issues. The central focus of this handbook on integrated assessment within primary care settings [is] important and timely…Assessment is a critical component of integrative psychology services within primary care services. This handbook will provide an overview of this topic, detailed recommendations concerning specific assessment instruments, and in-depth case examples.”—Robert Archer, PhD, author, Assessing Adolescent Psychopathology: MMPI-A / MMPI-A-RF, Fourth Edition
