PSYC 6351 - Psychological Assessment: Personality


(5 cr.) Students are introduced to basic skills related to the assessment of personality. Students examine historical and theoretical foundations of personality tests, including the MMPI-2, BSI, NEO PI-R, and the Rorschach in this course. They learn to administer, record, score, and interpret specific measures of personality. Students also engage in practical assignments, focusing on applied aspects of psychological testing. Through a final project, students synthesize assessment data from cognitive and personality assessments into a formal written report. Students also engage in a skill-based, face-to-face residency requirement. (Prerequisite(s): Matriculation into the Counseling, Clinical, or School Psychology specializations, or M.S. in Mental Health Counseling students by permission; a grade of B or better in PSYC 6315/PSYC 8316 or in another graduate course in tests and measurements. Students must take the assessment courses sequentially: PSYC 6341/PSYC 8341 Psychological Assessment: Cognitive prior to PSYC 6351/PSYC 8351 Psychological Assessment: Personality.) Note: This course requires students to submit a videotape of a mock assessment session; therefore, students must have access to a digital camcorder.
