PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT B
Credit points: 10
This subject extends the knowledge base acquired in Psychological Assessment A and moves from a focus on psychometric theory, measurement and interpretation to focus on traditional and controversial assessments of psychopathological states. It presents a critical approach to classificatory systems such as DSM and ICD and discusses the limitations of the current system in the light of the research implicating genetic and psychobiological brain development in psychopathology. A collaborative and individualised approach to assessment informs this subject and students will be challenged to reflect on professional and ethical issues relating to psychologiucal assessment.
