The Psychological Examination of the Child by Theodore H. Blau
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Unlike other books on child testing, this practical and boldly original book establishes a conceptual framework for psychological evaluation of children. Instead of focusing on the assessment of particular conditions, the book deals with what it is important to find out about all children, both normal and disturbed. It sets forth a standardized means of assessment, the Basic Psychological Examination, which is comparable in scope and comprehensiveness to a physician's medical exam. This exam enables the practitioner to identify virtually anything out of order in a child's development and the book therefore commends itself to educators, researchers, and clinicians alike.
