This workshop explores disorders of memory, our understanding of memory and the use of memory tests in clinical settings. Attendees will learn the principles of memory testing including the use of the Wechsler Memory Scale and the Addenbrookes Cognitive Evaluation - III. The meaning of results obtained from such tests and their reliability will be discussed. Disorders of memory, including different dementias, will be explored.
The workshop is the third of a series of four planned to provide counselling psychologists with neuropsychological knowledge to apply within their own area of practise. Delegates are advised to attend these workshops in order to gain the maximum from their attendance as delegates will be encouraged to carry out work between workshops to aid integration of neuropsychology into their practice. Each workshop will encourage delegates to consider how their learning maps onto the Neuropsychology competences.
Who is the course intended for?
This workshop will be particularly useful for those psychologists at the end of their accredited training or post qualified who have not had the opportunity to engage in psychometric training or neuropsychology. This will be a combination of both theory and hands on practice so attendees will be able to take their learning back to their workplace.
