Description

This program is designed to build upon attendees’ knowledge of psychological assessment to introduce the ethical and competent use of psychological tele-assessment. Recent research demonstrates that appropriate tele-assessment procedures are empirically equivalent to in-person assessment. Tele-assessment also allows for greater client access to psychological assessment, emphasizing the need for psychologists to be well-trained in tele-assessment. Foundational knowledge about tele-assessment will be provided, and tele-assessment procedures that are empirically equivalent to traditional, in-person assessment will be introduced. Special considerations for the practice of teleassessment will be described, including unique ethical considerations. By the end of the program, attendees will learn how to integrate psychological tele-assessment into their practice.
