PSY 6630 - Assessment and Intervention Across the Lifespan

3 Credit(s)

This course will continue your training in and experience with measurement theory, psychological testing, evaluation and assessment. The course surveys multiple assessment tools, with an emphasis in familiarity with test instruments and case conceptualization across the lifespan. The first three units of the course will focus upon assessment and intervention with children and adolescents, while the final unit will explore assessment and intervention with older adults. Following introductory material, students begin an in depth exploration of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2). Students will then turn our attention to methods of academic, behavioral and neurodevelopmental assessment, including the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, Fourth Edition (WIAT-4), the Behavioral Assessment System for Children, Third Edition (BASC-3) and the Conners- 3rd edition (a thorough assessment of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). The next unit explores projective and objective measures of functioning, including the Rorschach Psychological Inkblot Test, the Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory, Second Edition (MACI-2) and the Gender Identity Workbook. Finally, students will transition their focus to the assessment of later adulthood including assessment of dementia (e.g., MoCA, DRS-2), decision-making capacity, and mood. The course will also cover interventions including individual, family, and caregiver therapy as well as providing services in outpatient, primary care, and long-term care settings.
