Existential Assessment
Dana, Richard H.; Leech, Shirley
Journal of Personality Assessment, 38, 5, 428-35, Oct 74

A humanistic-existential model shifts the focus from omnipotence to encounter and encourages client responsibility. Some pertinent assessment issues are formulated and specific instruments are referred to. (Author/RC)
