$50.00

Presenters:

Emily Gottfried PhD Medical University of South Carolina, Assessment Section President Elect

Hadas Pade PsyD California School of Professional Psychology SF Bay Assessment Section President

Brief Description:

The provision of assessment feedback should be considered in every assessment case. Not only is assessment feedback recommended in the APA Ethics Code (standard 9.10: Explaining assessment results; APA, 2017), the Standards (AERA, APA, & NCME, 2014), and noted as a primary area of competency in assessment training by the APA (2020), research has shown that it can have a significant, positive impact on therapeutic outcomes (e.g., Ackerman et al., 2000; Allen et al., 2003; Poston & Hanson, 2010). This session will briefly review the core components of in-person feedback sessions and written reports, including person focused contextually integrated findings in reader friendly language to address assessment goals and questions in clinical settings (Chapman-Hillard, et. al 2018; Wright, 2020). Common challenges in feedback as well as general recommendations towards effective feedback will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

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

1. Identify the core components for providing effective feedback.

2. List strategies recommended for meaningful written reports.

3. Discuss the importance of client context in feedback across clinical settings.
