PSD7116 Assessment II/Personality Assessment I and Lab

Course Description

Focuses on the various ways personality is assessed through objective measures. Students learn to administer, score, and interpret personality inventories with emphasis on the MMPI-2. One hour of lab each week is included to help the student acquire skills in the administration, scoring, and interpretation of objective personality measures. In addition, emphasis is placed on the integration of cognitive and objective personality test findings within the context of history, mental status, behavioral observations, SES, and culture. Students learn to integrate these data into a psychological test report which provides a clear description of the subject and his or her strengths and weaknesses and relevant treatment recommendations.
