PSYR 8350 - Personality Assessment


(5 cr.)
This course is designed to introduce students to the theory and concepts relevant to objective personality assessment as well as to build the skills needed to administer, score, and interpret specific measures of personality and social-emotional functioning in a professionally and ethically responsible manner. The course is also designed to develop students’ skills in selection of assessment methods, integration of all assessment data, case formulation, psychodiagnosis, report writing, and treatment planning based on assessment findings. This course has a skill-based, face-to-face required in-residence component, which is designed to be hands-on, intensive, and cumulative to promote learning and skill building that will generalize to “real-world” practice. Students can gain experience in integrative report writing and begin to develop evidence-based consultation and test-interpretation feedback skills. Satisfactory completion of this demanding course is seen as an essential component of the core Professional Psychology curriculum. It will be important for students to demonstrate mastery of course requirements considered essential in the professional practice of psychology (professional knowledge, skills, and attitudes) at the required in-residence. This course is provided in-residence, which means that students divide their time between online activities and activities completed in-residence, with the majority of the instruction occurring face-to-face during the in-residence class meetings.
