Psychological Assessment of Aboriginal Children and Adolescents

This workshop provides a systematic, research-based and practical approach to the psychological assessment of Aboriginal children and adolescents. We will explore the impact of cultural and linguistic factors on the development of academic skills through the school years. The strengths and limitations of psychological instruments will be reviewed, and a framework for the effective psychological assessment of Aboriginal children will be presented. Specific assessment methods will be demonstrated, including the conducting of interviews, the use of questionnaires and specialised tests, and the development of individualised case formulations.

Workshop Dates:
19 & 20 October 2017
