Through the years, the technique has been greatly enhanced by subsequent conceptual and methodological developments and has gained wide currency in a host of appraisal settings. In this long-awaited expansion of his classic 1961 monograph, Jack Block traces the history, rationale, and productive ramifications of the Q-sort technique, as implemented by the long-established California Q-sort. Major versions of the Q-sort currently in use are included, complete with detailed instructions, empirically based savvy, and descriptive "prototypes" especially apt for the individual sorter's reference frame. Clinical and personality psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and graduate students will find this book to be the definitive work on an important and underused personality assessment tool"--Jacket.
