PSY 6255 - Applied Assessment II: Personality and Psychopathology


4 Credit(s)

This course will continue your training in and experience with measurement theory, psychological testing, evaluation and assessment. The course begins with coverage of general measurement topics, including psychometric theory, ethical issues, and test characteristics. We then focus our attention on some commonly-used and researched ‘objective’ personality inventories, the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory - 3 (MMPI-3), the MMPI-A (Adolescent), the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI) and the Neuroticism Extraversion Openness-Personality Inventory-3(NEO-PI-3). Following introductory material, you will gain ‘hands-on’ experience with MMPI-3 & NEO-PI-3 administration/interpretation and the written presentation of assessment results. In the interest of linking assessment activities with positive outcomes in psychotherapy, these ‘hand-on’ experiences will facilitate your understanding of how test data have potential to inform psychotherapeutic intervention and case formulation. Over the course of the semester, you will complete 3 mock psychological evaluations of undergraduate volunteers. These ‘evaluations’-culminating in written reports-will synthesize data from tests, live observation, and an adapted ‘clinical’ interview. (Summer - 2nd Session) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
