Diversity-Sensitive Personality Assessment is a comprehensive guide for clinicians to consider how various aspects of client diversity—ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, religion, regionalism, socioeconomic status, and disability status—can impact assessment results, interpretation, and feedback. Chapters co-written by leading experts in the fields of diversity and personality assessment examine the influence of clinician, client, interpersonal, and professional factors within the assessment context. This richly informed and clinically useful volume encourages clinicians to delve into the complex ways in which individuals’ personal characteristics, backgrounds, and viewpoints intersect. This book fills an important gap in the personality assessment literature and is an essential resource for clinicians looking to move beyond surface-level understandings of diversity in assessment.
