Discover a comprehensive and practical guide to the use of tele-assessments in psychological testing from two leading voices in psychology. 

Essentials of Psychological Tele-Assessment delivers a primer on the current state of professional knowledge related to psychological tele-assessment, ranging from the ethical and empirical considerations to the practical applications of tele-assessment procedures. The overarching framework encourages the balancing of the limitations of the current state of the research literature with the very real needs for assessment services to continue, even when in-person procedures are not feasible. 

This book includes discussion on a broad range of tests and measures, with information related to both the state of the empirical support for tele-tests and measures, with information related to both the state of the empirical support for tele-assessment utilizing them and the practical 'how-to' for administering, scoring and interpreting daa that emerge from them. Additionally, frameworks for integrating the data that emerge from tele-assessment procedures are discussed. 

The book is applicable to those transitioning to tele-assessment practice and those training in a wide variety of training programs. Readers will also benefit from the inclusion of: 

- Practical checklists and information about specific tests must be adapted to the realities of the tele-health environment. 
- Information about how the resutls of tests should be interpreted differently to account for the tele-health environment. 
-Case examples and studies to illustrate many of the challenges of working in tele-assessment 
-Guidance on how to balance the limitations of the state of the empirical literature on the validity of tele-assessment with the real-world needs of clients. 

Perfect for psychologists and trainees in a variety of health services, including clinical, counseling, school and forensic psychology, Essentials of Psychological Tele-Assessment will also earn a place in the libraries of anyone utilizing or training in cognitive, developmental, neuropsychological, psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, and interpersonal models of psychological assessment.
