"These four scales are excellent. They are comprehensive, efficient and simple
to use. Because the patient as well as the practitioner can complete them,
they allow for interesting comparisons. Because they are so closely tied
to the DSM-IV, they are quite helpful in treatment planning. They are
invaluable screening instruments. While they are useful to all practitioners,
they would seem to be a must for the hospital-based consultant. And the
accompanying manual matches the instruments in its clarity, simplicity and
brevity. These are lean, efficient products and will be useful to a variety
of health care psychologists."
