Dr. Bram’s Recent Book
Psychological Testing that Matters: Creating a Road Map for Effective Treatment was published by the American Psychological Association in 2014.
Psychological testing is most valuable when it makes a meaningful difference in a person’s treatment. This groundbreaking book offers a person- and treatment-centered approach to psychological testing, as opposed to the more common test-centered approach. The result is a clinically nuanced and robust approach to inference making and data synthesis.
