Broadly, psychological assessment should inform clinical decision-making in ways that improve outcomes in the lives of individuals. We will discuss definitional issues, the various goals that may be addressed with psychological assessment, research regarding the clinical utility of assessment, and important sub-processes such as therapeutic feedback.

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

  1. List the core components of evidence based clinical psychological assessment.
  2. Identify the benefits of recommended evidenced based assessment practice.
