Neuropsychology 2: Cognitive Assessment

Monday 30th September 2019 at BPS Offices, London

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.

Learning outcomes and objectives:

  • Understanding cognitive functions and their importance
  • Know the goals and benefits of neuropsychological assessment
  • Know how to consider the use of various measures to consider neuropsychological issues
  • Understand the risks of inappropriate assessments and over assessment
  • Understand how to present results in terms of domains rather than test results

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 wish to extend their neuropsychological knowledge. This will be a combination of both theory and practice so attendees will be able to take their learning back to their workplace.
