    There may be another source for material on conducting worker disability evaluations, but (beyond a few general chapters in reference works) I have found none.The potential buyer should be aware that the book is written to cover all four types of disability evaluations: Social Security, employer-paid, worker's comp, and private disability insurance. Nonetheless, they do not receive equal attention. The author tells us that private disability claims are usually the most complex, with the largest back-trail of records, and so the majority of the book covers the issues involved with these evaluations. Even so, the book presents a useful summary of legal issues and standards for the Social Security disability evaluator.The author organizes the presentation in the same sections as all books in this series, and I found each one to present a lot of information I either did not know, or which I had not appreciated. The first section, a history of law and development of the concept of disability, contains most of the contrasts between the four kinds of evaluations. Next comes a section on forensic concepts, including an interesting discussion of disability as a competency. She builds on Grisso's observation that most forensic evaluations can be seen as forms of competency evaluation. Empirical foundations and limitations, section 3, contains the base-rate background and summary of tests and measures that would be essential to defend an evaluation on cross-examination.The final three sections walk through the process. Each section has the usual shout-out boxes that festoon so many manuals today. Some of the "Best Practice" and "Beware" boxes seem rather obvious or simplistic, although they may not be if the reader is just getting acquainted with this area of practice. Still, several of them contained short, punchy sentences that I found helpful, even in areas where I have done many of these evaluations. The text is thorough, weaving ethical standards into the process of evaluation and reporting (as it should be), with dozens of specific recommendations to create a well-founded report that will be easy to present and defend in the event of a hearing.Anyone who wants to practice in this area should strongly consider this book.

    Concise and helpful in producing a psychological report. This guide is a good addition to other training and sources of information.
