PSY-710G Integrated Assessment

2 semester credits

This course provides training, practice and feedback in the formulation and writing of integrated psychological assessment reports. Students will be required to integrate findings from multiple sources (clinical interviews, mental status examination, intellectual assessment, objective and projective personality assessment) in the production of a psychological testing report at the beginning internship level.
Pre-requisites: PSY-710A , PSY-710B , PSY-710C , PSY-710D1  and PSY-710D2  (or PSY-710E  and PSY-710F ), 6 credits of clinical practicum (any combination of PSY-695  or PSY-630 ).
Delivery Method: Blended
Grading Default: Letter
Learning Objective(s):  

1. Be able to articulate in writing psychological test findings, including those from cognitive, (Wechsler scales), objective personality (e.g. MMPI-2, MCMI-III, PAI) and projective (Rorschach, TAT) tests in a manner consistent with beginning internship level.

2. Be able to integrate clinical and test findings in a psychological testing report in a clear and professional manner, one that goes beyond specific findings to a rich and well-supported description of the individual being assessed.

3. Understand the readers to whom a given psychological report is to be directed and write in a manner commensurate with one’s anticipated readers.

4. Be aware of the limitations inherent in any clinical assessment and cognizant of the need for further work-up, research, interviews and referrals when these are needed.
