Neuropsychology 2: Cognitive Assessment

Thursday 4th October 2018 at BPS Offices, Tabernacle Street, London

Please note, this event is now fully booked and we are now operating a waiting list. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please complete the online booking form and a member of the team will be in touch if a place becomes available.

This workshop focuses on the psychological assessment of cognitive abilities, in particular the use of cognitive psychometric assessment tools, such as the WAIS-IV, the RBANS and the K-DEF. Delegates will become familiar with not only the basic principles of psychometric assessments but the more advanced considerations of domains, patterns of results and how these might provide more information than specific numerical score results obtained.

The workshop is one of a series of four planned to provide counselling psychologists with neuropsychological knowledge to apply within their own area of practise. Delegates are advised to attend these workshops in order to gain the maximum from their attendance as delegates will be encouraged to carry out work between workshops to aid integration of neuropsychology into their practice. Each workshop will encourage delegates to consider how their learning maps onto the Neuropsychology competences.

Who is the course intended for?

This workshop will be particularly useful for those psychologists at the end of their accredited training or post qualified who have not had the opportunity to engage in psychometric training or neuropsychology. This will be a combination of both theory and hands on practice so attendees will be able to take their learning back to their workplace.

  1. Understanding the use of psychometric measures
  2. Know how to consider the use of measures such as WAIS-IV to consider neuropsychological issues
  3. Know how to consider results in terms of domains
  4. Know how to present results in terms of domains

Please note, this event is now fully booked and we are now operating a waiting list. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please complete the online booking form and a member of the team will be in touch if a place becomes available.
