Description

Step-by-step Instant Solution


Question

Assume you are a clinical psychologist who is working with an individual needing a neuropsychological evaluation, but you do not have training in this area. You decide to make a referral to a neurological clinic run by Dr. Sigmund Myers, Dr. Stanford Binet, and Dr. M. M. P. I. Wechsler ll, all neuropsychologists. Dr. Myers and Dr. Wechsler are on vacation, so an appointment is made with Dr. Binet. Based on the required reading for this unit, discuss the following:

Describe what you will tell Dr. Binet about why you made the referral (what are the problems of this individual). These can be any conditions appropriate for a neuropsychologist.

Identify a minimum of two neuropsychological tests Dr. Binet is likely to administer and explain why the tests were chosen.

Justify the tests based on their validity and reliability.

Important: This assignment requires you to choose neuropsychological tests. Neuropsychologists administer tests in many different categories. For example, they might give an intelligence test (like the WISC) as part of a test battery, but it is still an intelligence test. Be sure you choose tests in the category of Neurological Tests.

Analyze any potential ethical and legal issues of doing the neuropsychological testing yourself
