Content

This unit deals with assessment for clinical syndromes with a view to planning treatment and evaluating progress. It also provides students with the skills to develop clinical profiles of clients in their placements. Topics include: the use and interpretation of specialised and in-depth tests, including projective techniques and multi-dimensional personality inventories, emphasising the development of a conceptual framework for conducting clinical assessments. Psychological testing is used to complement and enhance the clinical assessment. This unit aims to expand the students' expertise in following through specific hypotheses and utilising appropriate tests, and their skills in assessment, diagnosis and report writing. Each student will complete three comprehensive clinical reports of increasing complexity on cases seen in their placements.
