This workshop will explore 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 and 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.
Learning outcomes and objectives:
- know the theories of memory which underpin the use of memory measures
- know the principles of administering and interpreting memory assessments, including WMS-IV and ACE-III
- understand memory disorders and what to consider at assessment
- understand the importance of providing appropriate feedback to clients
- understand the importance of integrating neuropsychological results with therapeutic planning
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 wish to extend their neuropsychological knowledge.
This will be a combination of both theory and practice so attendees will be able to take their learning back to their workplace.
