Description

The objective of the course is to provide an introduction to the theory and practice of psychometric assessment in clinical work. Students will improve their ability to select, administer, score and interpret a range of psychometric assessment tools. The first semester provides an introduction to neuropsychological assessment, including intelligence testing, and assessment of the brain-behaviour relationship. The second semester familiarises you with the more frequently used psychometric tests of behavioural and emotional functioning, integrating them within a broad multi-modal, multi-informant understanding of your client.
