'Mpofu and Oakland have given us a volume of exceptional clarity, depth, and breadth, one whose utility extends well beyond rehabilitation psychology. As such, Rehabilitation and Health Assessment: Applying ICF Guidelines will be an outstanding text for courses in assessment at all levels of professional preparation and will serve as a valued reference source for future research in a wide variety of fields.'--PsycCRITIQUES Instructor's Guide Available to Qualified Instructors!

Editors Mpofu and Oakland have gathered an international team of experts to set forth this masterful volume-dedicated to helping students, researchers, and practitioners advance their understanding of test use, assessment, and measurement, using the framework and philosophy presented in the ICF model.
