Week 5 discussion | ABS 300 Psychological Assessment | Ashford University

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapters 13 and 14 in the text. Review the ABS 300 Week Five Discussion Clinical Neuropsychological Report for Ms. ThompsonPreview the document. For this discussion, you will take on the role of graduate student working in a mental health clinic as a part of a practicum assignment. You have been assigned to work with Ms. Thompson. You are provided a copy of Ms. Thompson’s clinical neuropsychological report and your responsibility is to assist Ms. Thompson in following through with the psychologist’s recommendations. You will focus on recommendations #3-5 in the clinical neuropsychological report in order to address impairments in attention and concentration that are adversely impacting her learning and social functioning. When you meet with Ms. Thompson, you will be required to confirm the reason for referral and develop a personalized intervention plan. To determine your comprehension of the information in the assessment report, your practicum supervisor asks you to summarize the psychological assessment findings. To begin your initial post, write a one-paragraph summary of the most significant psychological test results from the clinical neuropsychological report that will inform how you approach goal-setting with Ms. Thompson. Your summary must be 200- 250 words.

In addition, as a part of your training experience, your practicum supervisor challenges you to carefully review the tests used to evaluate Ms. Thompson. You are then instructed to research additional assessment measures and compile a list of alternative psychological tests that could be administered to Ms. Thompson to measure each of the ability areas addressed in the clinical neuropsychological report. Your list must include at least one valid and reliable psychological test for each of the following categories: General Cognitive Assessment, Attention Test(s), Language Test(s), Visuospatial Test(s), Learning/Memory Test(s), and Test(s) of Reasoning/Abstraction. For the second part of your discussion post, present the list of alternative tests that you compiled and include relevant information from the course text or a peer-reviewed journal article to support your choices.
