ASSESSMENT CE SERIES: Integrating Data and Managing Discrepancies in Psychological Assessment

$50.00

Presenter: A. Jordan Wright, Ph.D., ABAP New York University

Brief Description:

This presentation will present models for integrating data from different sources (both different methods and different informants), with a focus on thematic assessment and reconciling data discrepancies. The presentation will introduce participants to methods and reasons to integrate data throughout assessment reports, rather than just at the end in a summary or case formulation section, with a client-centered, rather than test-focused, methodology and aim. Fully integrating data within psychological assessments has been identified as an area of weakness in education and training in psychological assessment, despite the fact that it has been identified as a core competency (APA, 2020).

Learning Objectives:

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

1. Identify common psychological themes around which data can converge in psychological assessment.

2. Discuss methods for reconciling discrepant data when they emerge in an assessment.

3. Explain benefits of integrating data throughout an assessment report.
