About this Unit
Theory and Practice of Psychological Assessment and Intervention has been designed to develop practitioner competence by providing you with both relevant practical as well as theoretical input regarding the administration, scoring, and interpretation of some of the more frequently used standardised measures within an assessment context. In this unit, the scientific and ethical underpinnings of psychological testing and assessment are initially advanced in order to provide a general context for the employment of standardised psychological tests. Emphasis will then be placed on familiarising you with i) the processes that practitioners go through during a testing session and ii) current research employing the standardised tests presented in this unit. The unit will provide you with a foundation in psychological testing and assessment, allowing you to make informed use of some testing data and psychological reports. A further aim of the unit is to familiarise students with the principles of evidence based practice in psychological interventions.
