Supervised Practical Placement 3 - PSYN903

This unit is offered on a pass/fail basis.

This unit enables students to further develop the skills acquired in PSYN902. The unit provides students with supervised practical experience in conducting neuropsychological assessments including case formulation, interviewing, testing, scoring, test interpretation, report writing and (where appropriate) verbal feedback. At this stage students should be approaching independence on the more routine or uncomplicated assessments. They should be able to move from the history to formulation of hypotheses and selection of tests. They should also be approaching independence in writing reports in which integration of data from the history, test results and behavioural observations is achieved. The ability to recognise implications for diagnosis and/or management and to make appropriate recommendations should be developing at this stage.
