Description - Psychological Reports by Raymond L. Ownby
Provides a systematic approach to writing psychological reports foroptimal clarity, thoroughness, and impact
A clinical report should have all the clarity and precision of amilitary dispatch. Unfortunately, as anyone who deals withpsychological reports knows, this is almost never the case.Extensive research has shown that with most psychologist's reports,there is a dangerously wide gap between author intent and readerinterpretation. Since the quality of clinical reports can have adirect bearing on the quality of care a client receives--especially in an age of managed care --it is essential thatpsychologists arm themselves with a systematic approach to creatingreports that in structure, content, and style have the utmostclarity, thoroughness, and utility. Psychological Reports, ThirdEdition, provides them with such an approach.
The book begins with a theory-based analysis of report-writingproblems, which is then used to construct a framework foridentifying and correcting them. A valuable working resource forpracticing psychologists and psychotherapists, PsychologicalReports, Third Edition, is also must reading for students andpsychologists-in-training.
