Diagnostic Assess/Child

Spring 2019

Taught By: Inga Blom

Section: A

CRN: 6948

Credits: 3 TO 4

The purpose of this class is to provide a comprehensive introduction to psychological assessment for school age children and adolescents. Students successfully completing the course will demonstrate competency in the administration, scoring and interpretation of tests of intellectual, academic and emotional functioning. Case material will be woven into the seminar in order to introduce aspects of psychodynamic, cognitive, family systems and neuropsychological diagnostic perspectives. Although this is an introductory course, the emphasis will be on synthesizing results of testing data, clinical observation and collateral information to provide a thorough, child-centered evaluation. Students may have the opportunity to administer and write up a testing battery. TA Session participation is especially important for learning assessments that students will include in evaluations during the semester.
