Abstract
This workshop will focus on various aspects of neuropsychological assessment as an introduction to this area. Clinical neuropsychology is an applied science which is concerned with the relationship between the brain and behavior. It integrates the fields of clinical psychology and behavioral neurology and attempts to evaluate individuals suspected of having focal or diffuse brain dysfunction. Neuropsychological assessment utilizes specialized psychological tests to evaluate a wide variety of cognitive functions and behaviors that are dependent on the structural and functional integrity of the brain.

The cost of the workshop is $60 to professionals (check payable to “ACPN”) and free to psychology graduate students registered for the APS Convention. Each workshop is offered for 3 hours of Continuing Education Credits (CEs). ACPN is approved by the American Psychological Association (APA) to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. ACPN maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Workshop participants are expected to have some prior training and experience in neuropsychology assessment. Participation in this workshop is not a sufficient basis to engage in professional practice in this area.
