Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

A clinical psychologist is like a detective trying to solve a case. The assessment requires a collection of information from many sources. But final selection of diagnostic tools depends on several factors like severity of the condition, abilities or the age of the particular client. This course explores the administering, scoring, and interpreting some of the tests that typically are used in a clinical psychological diagnosis. The emphasis will be put on practical exercises with the assessment tools.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The course is divided into four sections. The first section introduces to what is an assessment in clinical psychology and briefly presents psychological tools to get the general idea of patient's or client's problems. Then the more specific diagnostic measures will be presented. During this part of the course, students will be practicing with CEQ-58 and one of the structured diagnostic interview SCID. The second part o the course is devoted to assessment of intellectual and cognitive abilities of a diagnosed person on an example of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale Fourth Edition (WAIS® IV). Structure, administering, scoring and interpreting of WAIS-IV will be presented in details. Students will be practicing with the tool. At the end of this part in a simulation of a testing situation, students will score and interpret the WAIS-IV that they will administer to a partner from the class. Student's impressions of both roles - the respondent and the administrator will be discussed. Also, the issue of test anxiety will be discussed. The next part of the course will cover the assessment of personality of a diagnosed person on an example of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory Second Edition (MMPI-2). Structure, administering, scoring and interpreting of MMPI-2 will be presented in details. During classes, students will be practicing with clinical cases. This part of the course will end with a test consisting of interpreting the results and writing feedback for the subject based on a clinical case provided by the lecturer. The last, fourth part of the course will try to answer the question in what sense a clinical psychological diagnosis can help when the patient's psychiatric diagnosis is already known on an example of the MATRICS Consesnus Cognitive Battery (MCCB). Structure, administering, scoring and interpreting of MCCB will be presented in details. Students will be practicing with the tool. To pass the course students will write a final test report that describes the results of the test battery (SCID, WAIS-IV, MMPI-2) provided by the lecturer along with short patients history.
