Dictionary of Behavioral Assessment Techniques
Edited by Michel Hersen and Alan S. Bellack
The field of behavior therapy has expanded to the point where it is impossible to be knowledgeable about all the assessment strategies practiced by clinicians on a daily basis. This resource incorporates descriptions of both major and minor behavioral assessment techniques written by their leading proponents and practitioners in the field. A new preface by the editors contributes to the book’s currency. Originally published by Pergamon Press in 1988.
From the Preface:
'When we first edited the Dictionary of Behavioral Assessment Techniques, it became clear to us that the field of behavior therapy had expanded to such a considerable extent that it was impossible (even for the so-called experts) to be knowledgeable about all of the assessment strategies carried out by our colleagues on a day-to-day basis. We therefore concluded that a dictionary, incorporating clear descriptions of major and minor techniques, would be of value to the field.'
