Presenters will share a model for thinking through complicated multi-method assessment cases integrating data from self-report, performance based assessment, cognitive testing, etc. They will lead you through the testing materials by linking data to the client’s level of understanding using the rubric of level 1, 2, 3. Then they will help you integrate a theoretical framework that helps the client change his narrative into a more compassionate and accurate narrative while also answering the Assessment Questions. The last part of the training will involve helping participants formulate hypotheses for the Assessment Intervention Session.
Participants will practice applying the model using a case example. Participants attending the course should have knowledge of at least one self-report, cognitive measure, and performance based assessment test.
Goals and Objectives:
1. Integrate multiple sources of data in an individualized manner relevant to the client.
2. Identify key points in addressing clients’ and referring professional questions for the assessment using the conceptualization.
3. Integrate data for one example case.
This is an introductory workshop for psychologists and graduate students at all levels of training.
