ASSESSMENT CE SERIES: A multimethod approach to psychological assessment

$50.00

Presenter: Robert F Bornstein PhD Adelphi University

Brief Description:

Multimethod assessment can yield richer case formulations and better-targeted interventions than single-modality assessment (Hopwood & Bornstein, 2014). Psychometrically multimethod assessment helps minimize the negative impact of limitations inherent in different types of measures. Clinically, “when test data from different modalities are integrated, and test score convergences and divergences are explored, multimethod assessment allows aspects of the client’s dynamics that might otherwise go unrecognized to be scrutinized directly”. This session will discuss the key components of multimethod psychological assessment and how to utilize it in clinical settings. All material presented in this session is based on published, peer-reviewed research which has been widely cited by psychologists and other mental health professionals. The findings, procedures, and theoretical concepts discussed in this program have all been used in empirical research, education, and psychological practice. Portions of the material presented in this session have been presented at annual meetings of the American Psychological Association, Association for Psychological Science, and Society for Personality Assessment.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the key features of multimethod psychological assessment

2. Apply a process-focused framework to interpret test score convergences and divergences

3. Utilize multimethod assessment techniques in clinical settings
