PSYC5534: Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology

Course

Description

Clinical and neuropsychological assessment and treatment of common neurodevelopmental disorders requires an understanding of normal cognitive development as well as the aetiology, developmental trajectory and underlying neuropsychological profiles. This facilitates the ability to identify comorbid and differential diagnoses and work with children and families in an effective manner. Thus, it is essential that Clinical Psychologists and Neuropsychologists stay abreast of the theory and research in this field so they can understand the difficulties faced by their clients, develop competencies in evidence-based assessment practices and implement appropriate therapies and interventions.
