ASSESSMENT CE SERIES: Diversity Considerations in Psychological Assessment

$50.00

Presenters: A. Jordan Wright, Ph.D. ABAP New York University and Lisa Suzuki, Ph.D. New York University

Brief Description:

As a core competency both within general health service psychology training in general and in psychological assessment specifically (APA, 2020), issues of culture and diversity must be integrated throughout the entire assessment process, beginning before a referral is even made and continuing throughout every aspect of the assessment. However, diversity issues in assessment have been identified as a particular area of weakness in assessment training (Gregus et al., 2020; Shipley, 2020). This workshop will introduce participants to methods for integrating a deliberate focus on culture and diversity throughout the assessment process, in order to facilitate the most valid and useful assessment results.

Learning Objectives:

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

1. Discuss diversity and cultural issues to consider when selecting tests and measures.

2. Identify important cultural considerations in the interpretation and integration of test and other assessment data.

3. Describe three specific techniques for collecting cultural data within an assessment.
