HPS951 - Advanced Health Assessment
Trimester 1: Burwood (Melbourne)
|Contact hours:||3 hours per week|
The unit builds on HPS979, Psychological Assessment, and deals more specifically with assessment for clinical and health syndromes with a view to planning treatment, wide-scale interventions and evaluating progress. It will also provide students with the skills to develop clinical and health profiles of clients and populations. Students will be instructed on the use and interpretation of specialised and in-depth tests, including projective techniques and multidimensional personality inventories. In addition, psychological testing is used to complement and enhance the health and clinical assessment. Report writing skills will be further developed. The various skills required for assessment, diagnosis and report-writing will be integrated and applied to the analysis of case material.
