PSD7117 Assessment III/ Personality Assessment II and Lab
An introduction to the use of projective techniques to assess psychological functioning. Particular attention will be given to the Rorschach and the TAT/CAT. One hour of lab each week is included to help the student acquire skills in the administration, scoring, and interpretation of these measures. In addition, emphasis is placed on the integration of cognitive, objective, and projective 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.
