Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on a range of measurement issues including traditional test development procedures and model testing. Themes of the chapter include the importance of integrating research disciplines and nosologies with regard to test development, the need for test development and measurement in the context of idiographic and nomothetic treatment designs, the need for change sensitive measures, and the possible integration of both idiographic and nomothetic treatment designs. Finally, the chapter emphasizes the importance of exploring novel areas of measurement (e.g., biological functioning, contextual factors) using emerging technologies. It is thought that innovative test development and use will lead to improved intervention model testing.

Keywords: assessment, measurement, psychotherapy, treatment, change
